Slave ShipNew scholarship has placed Africa and Africans at the hub of a historical process critical to the early modern history of four continents. In this fully online course, we will examine the making of the Atlantic world and the transatlantic slave trade with special attention to African perspectives and experiences. Through readings, activities, collaboration with colleagues and discussion with leading scholars, you will explore the wealth of virtual exhibits, databases, and digital document collections for Black Atlantic history, and will craft a curriculum project for your own classroom.

This course will be offered completely online and will require a basic comfort level and interest in the use of computer technology as a medium for learning. The time for completing each week's work is approximately 3-4 hours.

Especially for 8-12 educators.
