The Middle Passage (or Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade) was a voyage that took slaves from Africa to the Americas via tightly packed ships. The trade started around the early 1500s, and by 1654 about 8,000-10,000 slaves were being imported from Africa to the Americas every year. This number continued to grow, and by 1750 that figure had climbed to about 60,000-70,000 slaves a year. Because of the lack of necessary documents, it is hard to tell the exact number of Africans taken from their homeland. But based on available clues and data, an estimated 9-15 million were taken on the Middle Passage, and of that about 3-5 million died. While the whole idea seems sick and wrong, many intelligent

Atlantic Chattel Slavery
Through the progression of slavery, we see a gradual but dramatic change the way people viewed slaves. Many factors aided the deterioration of treatment towards slaves from a people to property mindset. Whether it was the beginning of the African Slave Trade, the economic driven cash crops, British laws passed to control slaves or the development of British Low Country each factor belittled the human aspect of a slave. To understand how one gets labeled as “cattle” we must understand where it came from. We first look at the beginning treatment of slaves to gather a comparison on how it differed from Atlantic Chattel Slavery.

participated in the slave trade and soon, slaves were brought to the Americas and sold by the millions. The slaves worked the plantations and the crops were shipped to Western Europe. The Europeans would then create manufactured goods and transport it to the western coast of Africa where they would trade these goods for their slaves. These slaves would be shipped and sold in the Americas, therefore, creating the Triangular Trade. An economic continuity was the constant trading between Europe, Africa and the Americas. The Transatlantic Slave Trade lasted throughout the years between 1500s through 1750 in the Atlantic waters.

the nearby village paid them in gold for their return.
Slave traders used many slave forts to protect themselves and their shipments. This was a way of guarding themselves against any attackers. It was also a way of holding slaves until they could be sold and shipped to the New World.
The Africans were sold in many ways. They were sold to traders by other Africans, and eventually forced into slavery by men with guns. From here, slaves were placed aboard ships to be taken across the Atlantic on a voyage that was eventually coined "the middle passage."
The middle passage of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade consisted of immeasurable brutality. Africans were chained and packed into

The shackled slaves were then forced to walk down hundreds and thousands of death marches. Half of the slaves left, they had to wait in the underground dungeons for the ships to pick them up. In the ship, seasickness, fever, and ‘bloody flux’ were common that 10 to 20% of the slaves died. The survivors were then taken to slaveholders and were forced to work about 18 hours a day.

The new introduction of cotton in the colonies caused a demand for workers. When the English landed in Virginia, there was simply too much land and not enough farmers. This is where the Atlantic slave trade began. Scholars, warriors, merchants, farmers and artisans were shipped to the New World as servants to wealthy landowners. These landowners quickly saw the benefits of taking advantage of the "under privileged" and soon took on slavery. If blacks were considered as equals or even employees

Indies and North America. The supply of slaves from Africa was crucial to the New Worlds successful economic development. African’s also proved themselves to be valuable and skilled farmers and artisans who could endure the heavy labor of plantation life without the sickness and death that struck the local Indian populations. The Atlantic slave trade continued for an addition 300 years until the 19th century when it was finally suppressed by European governments. During this period, it is estimated that between 9.5 and 12 million African men, women and children were shipped to the New World as slaves.

How did people become slaves in Africa before European merchants arrived?
• If one were cut off from an African lineage one could be enslaved by another lineage. This could happen through war, through punishment for crime, or as a consequence of not being able to pay debts. Slaves were put to work in fields, mines, and on trading routes; their allocation was controlled by (and benefited) the elite.

In the beginning of the eighteenth century, the colonists were able to buy land for cheap; an acre would often go for only a shilling. The land was plentiful but without labor the land was worthless for agriculture. The growth and diversity of the colonial population was from immigration and natural increase through reproduction and the flourishing population of the colonies shows the economy was expanding. In Southern colonies during the eighteenth century, slavery became a significant attribute to the economy due to the rapid growth of population. The South had twice the population than either the northern or middle colonies.

, 18, 1452, Pope Nicholas V issued the papal bull 'Dum Diversas', granting King Alfonso V of Portugal the right to "attack, conquer, and subjugate Saracens, Pagans and other enemies of Christ wherever they may be found." It gave title over all lands and possessions seized and permitted the Portuguese to take the inhabitants and consign them to perpetual slavery. Dum Diversas legitimised the colonial slave trade that begun around this time with the expeditions by Henry the Navigator to find a sea route to India, which were financed with African slaves. This approval of slavery was reaffirmed and extended in his Romanus Pontifex of 1455.

In one of the arguments, it is said that as a result of the slave trade practices in were Africans through slave traders were taken into custody and then through shipments taken to the American slave buyers across the Atlantic Ocean (CQ researcher, 2004).

Within a century of contact, smallpox, measles, mumps, and whooping cough had reduced indigenous populations by 50 to 90 percent. From Peru to Canada, disease reduced the resistance that Native Americans were able to offer to European intruders.
With the Indian population decimated by disease, Europeans gradually introduces a new labor force into the New World: enslaved Africans. Between 1502 and 1870, when the Atlantic slave trade was finally suppressed, from ten to fifteen million Africans were shipped to the Americas.

In this book The French and Indian War: Deciding the Fate of North America, the author and historian Walter R.

If ever there truly was a climax to the never ending feud of the European powers that be, Borneman would like to suggest that it was The Seven Years War.

Orwell shows the significant difference in the education and levels of knowledge in the animals, and how the government takes advantage of this difference. The split between the levels of intelligence is portrayed in the first chapter when the idea of rebellion is sparked: “… the stupidest of them had already picked up the tune and a few words, and as for the clever ones, such as the pigs and the dogs, they had the entire song by heart within a few minutes” (Orwell 13).

This project integrates the concepts of curriculum design, together with aspects of lesson planning taking into consideration the abilities, level and learning styles of the students. In addition, utilizing the practices put forward under constructivism, we aim to encourage participation and interest of students, within group and individual activities. The teacher acts as facilitator and guide, providing support, feedback and praise where applicable.
Bruner and Haste (1987) described learning as a complex link of language, interaction and cognition. They advocated that it is through interaction and the practice of communication that people learn and that the teacher’s role is to
