Today we evaluated the labor systems that developed in colonial North America in terms of their human and societal costs. We started out by debriefing the Jamestown activity from the end of the day yesterday and the podcast you listened to last night. We next did a DocBlock HAPP analysis and interpretation over our first secondary source, The Middle Passage by Mannix and Cowley. We finished up the day analyzing a set of advertisements for runaway slaves and servants in colonial newspapers in the 1700's.
Tonight, you need to respond to the following question in 1-2 paragraphs, citing evidence from the advertisements:
In what ways and to what degree did the institutions of servitude and slavery in colonial America differ from one another.
I've included the sample response to the Jamestown activity we examined in class below for your reference as you write. Also, don't forget that Chapter 4 notes are due Friday!
