Say what your name is, how old you are, your tribe and where you live. Then write a couple of paragraphs about life in the village. You could make reference to your family, manhood training and jobs you do in the village. First Extract:  First Extract In your first extract explain what you feel like when you see white men – before your capture. Invent a scene where you see them but they don’t see you. Then write about how you get captured. Write down how it happened and what it felt like. Emotion is very important in this assessment. Second Extract: On the Beach:  Second Extract: On the Beach Write down how you are treated once you are captured, it might be a day or two since you were caught – how do you feel now? Imagine you are walking in a line of people to the beach – all captured. What is it like when you see the beach? Make reference to seeing cages and the big slave ship. Second Extract: On the Beach:  Second Extract: On the Beach Write down that you are in a cage – how does that feel? Look around – are there many cages? Is there anybody there you know? Write about what it is like to be put on board the small rowing boat and transported to the big slave ship. How would you describe it in your diary? Third Extract: Journey to America:  Third Extract: Journey to America Write about the journey on the slave ship. How do you feel now? What does the ship smell like – why is this? How are you treated – what are you fed on? Refer to the chains/room to move around. How does the treatment of men and women differ? Extract 3: Journey to America:  Extract 3: Journey to America Write about going on deck for the first time after many days – what is it like for you? What is surprising about it? What do you think about the white men? Write about what the crew and the ship – how do they look, behave. Extract 3: Journey to America:  Extract 3: Journey to America Write in your diary a plan to get to control of the ship. Then write down how it goes – remember it has to fail. Write down what happens now to you. Are you injured in some way – it would have to be a small wound. Extract 4: Arrival:  Extract 4: Arrival The slave ship arrives in America and you are brought out on deck to be transported to the holding cells. Write down what this strange land looks like – does the landscape look the same? What about the buildings and the people? You are marched through the town to the cells – how do you feel? Extract 4: Arrival in America:  Extract 4: Arrival in America At the auction write down how you are made to look good for the sale. How do you feel be inspected by people? Do you know what is happening? What is the journey like to the Plantation? What is your new name now? Hints:  Hints Use more than one source for guidance on this – do not re-tell the story of Roots! The more sources you use and the more imagination you use the better you grade you can achieve. Remember lots of things you’d see the white men have, would be strange to you so try to describe them in a style similar to Kunta Kinte. Sources we have used::  Sources we have used: Roots Video Pg. 70 – 71 Peace and War – The Slave Ship Zong The Slave Story Sheet. Source sheet on conditions on the slave ship. Black People of America Textbook.
