A curriculum on slavery in New York State

20060312_032115_slavery031206.jpgThe Associated Press has distributed a story about the New York Slavery curriculum, which Alan Singer, a social studies prof at Hofstra University, developed with Mary Carter (Hofstra U), April Frances (Lawrence Road MS, Uniondale), Kerry Creegan (Massapequa HS, Massapequa) and with support from numerous social studies education colleagues.

The curriculum guide is a 2005 National Council of the Social Studies “Social Studies Program of Excellence” award winner.

The complete document-based curriculum guide, which was prepared for the “Gateway to the City” Teaching American History Grant Project is available on the New York State Council for the Social Studies web site.
