How much can sources reveal about resistance to Transatlantic Slavery?
This is an enquiry that gets students to think about the following things :
- The variety of ways in which Transatlantic Slavery was resisted by those enslaved or threatened with enslavement.
- How to make well-explained and justified inferences from various types of sources.
- The work historians (and historians from below in particular) have to do with ‘the archive’ to write narratives about people who were enslaved.
It would be impossible to get students to consider all of the sources referenced in the lessons. It would be your choice which to include and which to remove.
I would strongly advice reading the teacher notes ahead of planning and teaching.
If you have any questions / queries – please do feel free to contact.
