Love the primary sources for my students to use as exhibits for DBQ style questions, which is in keeping with skill development for the new PARCC assessments.

I have attached a link to a wonderful overview of the issue from historians Sven Beckert from Harvard and Seth Rockman from Brown.Here is the link http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-01-24/how-slavery-led-to-modern-capit...
The classic book on the subject is Eric Williams Capitalism and Slavery but there are a number of more recent studies as well (http://brown.edu/web/slaveryconf/research.html)

Great reading strategies to support learning. I'd love to see the same support in the writing section. For example, graphic organizer for claims/counterclaims and another for logging text evidence. Thank you for the work as is, just thinking ahead.

(I could not get the full essay to display.)

I would argue that the suffrage cause was further along in 1916 than is stated in this excerpt. The addition of California to the suffrage column in 1911 was very important, as was the enactment of partial (including presidential) suffrage in Illinois in 1913.
