Warm-up "Based on what you know, draw what slavery looked like in the 13 Colonies."
After students complete drawings, teacher should compile a list of common themes. Class
will then read the introduction to Fort Mose and discuss graphic. Class should be broken up
into 5 groups, 1 each for Urban Interlude, Militia, Life at Mose, Home and Family, Daily
Bread & Cowboys. Students will rotate from station to station, making note of relevant
aspects of the readings. After all 5 stations are completed, class will come together to discuss.










Day 2
Students will reassemble groups with notes from Day 1. Groups will create "Resident Rules"
for the Fort Mose community (considering understanding of complaints of African
Americans in 13 Colonies and opportunities of African Americans in St. Augustine). Each
group will share out.
