Article/Lesson Plan

Discussion created by rthomas26345 on Oct 23, 2018

For those of you interested in GIS in the history classroom you might want to take a look at this article published last week in the latest issue of the Oregon Journal of Social Studies (OJSS Journal 0602.pdf ).  The article is entitled "Sold Down the River: Broad Context & Individual Perspective" and focuses on the sale of slaves "down the river" into the cotton and sugar plantations in the new South during the decades prior to the Civil War.  The article provides background to the history, a discussion of the use of GIS, and an extended lesson plan.
