Based on the memoirs of Olaudah Equiano and the story of the Amistad rebellion, this simulation attempts, as far as is ever possible, to help students understand the harrowing "Middle Passage" across the Atlantic. Complete with five different lesson plans, students then produce a memoir as did Equiano, which later becomes the centerpiece of their campaign to abolish slavery, thereby putting the role of black people in the abolition movement center-stage.
In this simulation you take the role of one of two guests debating the key issue "Who is Responsible for the Middle East Conflict?". As the conversation progresses you will be tested on your factual knowledge and sourcework skills.
