Activity Overview


Students will create a storyboard that represents the experiences of an individual who lived during the Slave Trade. This activity will help students to visualize texts related to the Slave Trade and be able to recreate this infamous period in American History.


Teachers may choose the texts, but in the example storyboard, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave has been used. Students will select significant passages from the text, create a visualization, and include the text below each representation.



Extended Activity

To extend this activity, students will read The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano. Students will select powerful passages from Equiano’s work and represent his incredible life through a storyboard. For students that completed both activities, they can also create a T-Chart that compares and contrasts the experiences of Douglass and Equiano.
