Slavery Unit. Using Primary Sources in the Classroom.
Alabama Dept. of Archives and History, Montgomery.
This teaching unit, "Slavery Unit," is the third in a series of 10 units about Alabama state history, part of a project designed to help teachers integrate the use of primary source materials into their classrooms. Although the units are designed to augment the study of Alabama, they are useful in the study of U.S. history, world history, and the social studies in general. Each unit contains background information for the teacher and consists of several lessons. Lessons contain learning objectives, suggested activities, and documents. This unit is divided into four sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Lesson 1: Slave Code of 1833" (French Code Noir; one worksheet; 16 primary source documents); (3) "Lesson 2: Point of View of Former Slaves" (five primary source documents); and (4)"Lesson 3: Point of View: Accounts of Former Slaveholders" (six primary source documents).
