PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource is a critical reading activity involving a NY Times Op-Ed that appeared shortly after Haiti's earthquake in 2010. In the Op-Ed, the author explains how the roots of Haiti's problem actually begin with its successful slave revolution beginning in 1791, and how other slave societies isolated Haiti and sent it down the path of economic underdevelopment and debt.

This was used as a summative assessment in an AP World history class. Students read the article, number the paragraphs, mark the text with a purpose, summarize main ideas in the left hand column and annotate in the right with questions, connections, comments. etc. Some of the more difficult words and phrases are defined in footnotes for struggling readers.

A great critical reading activity that's common core aligned - really connects how current events can find their roots in events from 200 years ago.
