Teaching about the Haitian Revolution in World History

The Haitian Revolution’s crucial role in the history of the Americas and the abolishment of racial slavery is often overlooked in traditional textbooks.

Join the Choices Program and the National Council for History Education (NCHE) as we walk through the readings, lessons, and videos found in the Choices Program’s curriculum The Haitian Revolution (updated edition published in September 2018), which explores the causes, effects, and legacies of the revolution. We’ll also examine Haiti-related lessons from the Choices unit Racial Slavery in the Americas: Resistance, Freedom, and Legacies (provided).

We are proud to partner with The Choices Program at Brown University for this important contribution to teachers' professional development. Click the registration button to be taken to the registration page for The Choices Program.
