Guiding Question:
Why was and is abolition important? 
How can we make people more aware of modern slavery around the world?

Collaborative: Students will work towards informing their community about their chosen form of modern slavery by beginning to work on a public service announcement (PSA), collecting at least three pieces of evidence, and answering at least two planning questions.

Independent: Students will research abolition in our past and in our present, complete an evidence collection log, and write a CEREAL paragraph with a score of at least 3/4 according to the 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and identify the strategies that were tried to both overturn and preserve it (e.g., through the writings and historical documents on Nat Turner, Denmark Vesey).
CCRA.R.1 – Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
W.8.1 - Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence. 
ELD B.6 - Read closely to determine how meaning is made
