What was the character of American slavery?

Collaborative: Students will understand the effects of slavery on black Americans by reading about the experience of Solomon Northup and answering guiding questions and citing text evidence with at least 80% accuracy. 

Independent: Students will compare the experience of Free blacks in the North with slaves in the South by creating a "Choose Your Own Adventure" story from the perspective of an abolitionist determined to help African Americans with a score of at least 3/4 according to a rubric. 


8.7.2 - Trace the origins and development of slavery; its effects on black Americans and on the region’s political, social, religious, economic, and cultural development; and identify the strategies that were tried to both overturn and preserve it (e.g., through the writings and historical documents on Nat Turner, Denmark Vesey).
8.7.4 - Compare the lives of and opportunities for free blacks in the North with those of free blacks in the South.
