After a brief discussion over last night's homework reading, we did a DocBlock (HAPP analysis) on the selections The Middle Passage, out first secondary source selection for DocBlock. Because it is the first, we discussed the shift you need to make in the Historical Context portion when faced with a secondary source.
The remainder of class was giver over to your first extended analysis of multiple historical documents with the goal of collecting data and information which can be used to answer essential historical questions. The focus of today's activity was runaway slave advertisements from 1743-1770. Tonight, you need to use the information you collected and your recollections of the debriefing questions we discussed in class to craft a ONE to TWO paragraph response to the following question:
In what ways and to what degree did runaway slaves impact the social structure of Colonial America?
Don't forget, Chapter 4 is also due tomorrow!
