A wide collection of slave auction posters for analysis.

Students watch a short video about slave auctions, analyse posters, read the information sheet and then complete two tasks:

2. Write a diary entry from a slave's perspective about slave auctions.
Students are given a list of 10 slaves to choose from to represent.

Everything is ready to print and GO.
