These are Their Stories...

By class today, you should have read the introduction/chapter 1 of the Slave Ship. Today we will spend some time discussing the perspectives of those individuals who participated in the events discussed in the chapters.

  • Break into groups of 4-5 of your choice! :)
  • Each group will be given a perspective of an individual discussed in the chapter.
    • Captain Tomba
    • The Boatswain
    • Cabin Boy Robinson
    • Captain James Fraser
    • Merchant Henry Laurens
  • Working with your group, share your ideas about the significance of the role of these individuals. Please refer to specific page numbers when you share/discuss important facts!
  • Once your group has completed your section, please write your responses up on the board.
  • Class discussion!
