The Origins of Slavery and Racism: A Supplement to Cure What Textbooks Do Not Say.
Crumly, Roy L.
Designed to supplement an 8th grade history course with the best updated research on the subject of slavery's origins, the lesson plan described in this paper has several objectives: (1) To augment the secondary textbooks, most of which either do not cover the beginnings of slavery, or cover it adequately; (2) To acquaint students with the historical origins of slavery and its impact especially concerning racism in America; (3) To show that slavery developed gradually while prejudice occurred quickly; (4) To help explain why black Africans were made slaves and the origins of American racism; (5) To argue strongly against slavery and racism; and (6) To make better citizens of students. Also included are notes, suggested and selected bibliographies, and nine pages of lecture-handouts and worksheets. (TRS)
