And, for enslaved Africans, forced to endure their own "middle passage," the voyage end was as great a nightmare as its beginning. As always, History Now provides pedagogical support for its readers. The interactive feature in this issue provides visual reinforcement of our theme of transatlantic history through maps from the sixteenth century.
Our master teachers, Bruce Lesh and Phil Nicolosi, offer suggestions for selecting the major themes of the five essays around which to build lessons for your classrooms. Sample lessons are provided by other master teachers. And, Mary-Jo Kline, our archivist, once again offers a wealth of online and print sources that will allow you to pursue the topics of all, or any, of the essays you have read.
Taken together, the essays and the supporting materials will, we hope, give you fresh and exciting new topics as you introduce your students to the beginnings of their own society.
