The Four Things Students Need to Create Good Book Trailers Creating book trailer videos is a great alternative to a traditional written book report assignment. In a book trailer video students highlight their favorite elements of a story and try to entice viewers to read the book themselves. Much like a movie trailer that tries to get viewers to watch the full movie, a book trailer should give viewers just enough to be interested in the full story without giving away the conclusion to the story.

The Atlantic Slave Trade Visualized in Two Minutes: 10 Million Lives, 20,000 ... Not since the sixties and seventies, with the black power movement, flowering of Afrocentric scholarship, and debut of Alex Haley’s Roots, novel and mini-series, has there been so much popular interest in the history of slavery.

The dots “also correspond to the size of each voyage.

Slavery to civil rights The Right To Vote Rally Few people have suffered more than the native Africans who were abducted from their home countries and brought across the Atlantic like animals to serve as slaves for white plantation owners in the southern states of America. Despite some stories of kind slave owners, there is no doubt that this was an outrageous act of inhumanity. The Blacks were bought and sold on the slave market, like pieces of livestock, and most of them were treated cruelly by their masters.

m.facebook Back in 2015, when we published our lesson plan Fake News vs. Real News: Determining the Reliability of Sources, we had no way of knowing that, a year later, the Oxford Dictionaries would declare “post-truth” the 2016 word of the year; that fake news would play a role in the 2016 presidential election; that it would cause real violence; and that the president-elect of the United States would use the term to condemn mainstream media outlets he opposes. Back then, to convince teachers that the skill was important, we quoted Peter Adams of the News Literacy Project on the “digital naïveté” of the “digital natives” we teach. Now, however, we doubt that we need to convince anyone.
