Looking at Human Struggle Through The Language Arts Curriculum: The Faces of Slavery

Sixth graders examine the use of slavery in the United States. Using a map, they draw the route of the Tecora and Amistad voyages. Individually, they write an essay describing their opinions on whether the Africans on the ships should be able to go free. They write a journal entry role-playing as someone on the ships and re-write one of the books in the form of a cartoon or children's book to end the lesson plan.
