S2 Slavery Investigation

We’ve made a slight change to the 2nd year Social Subjects investigation into slavery in the Americas this year, with greater emphasis on specific slaves.

Pupils research the experiences of one of these slaves to create a presentation promoting the abolition of slavery altogether, taking the role of the slave themselves. Several slave accounts were published and used as evidence by the abolitionists.

Many pupils have become so involved with the people they’re investigating that they’re asking about the full length books. Fortunately, most of them are available online for free on the Internet archive because they are out of copyright.
