Average Rating 0 Reviews View While slavery in the U.S. is a common topic in the curriculum, students rarely learn about slave systems in other parts of the world. In this curricular unit, students and teachers use four case studies to explore the history of slavery around the world. Units range geographically from Latin America (Brazil and Haiti), Africa (the Swahili Coast), and the Middle East (Ottoman Egypt). Each unit includes an introductory reading, a map, and primary sources with Document-Based-Question (DBQ) style questions that cover the following topics: legal status of slaves, slave labor, rights and responsibilities of slaves and slave-owners, slaves and religion, rebellions, runaways and emancipation, and abolition movements.
