Welcome to the Classroom! Here you’ll find materials for students, teachers, and researchers of the early Caribbean. We believe that working with the Early Caribbean Digital Archive will expand the ways in which we discuss and think about history, colonialism, and the experiences of enslaved people. Our classroom seeks to provide our users with the framework to teach these materials to insure that this happens. This includes offering access to sample syllabi, assignments/projects, research guides, and more. We also encourage you to contribute materials; our classroom thrives when we have materials available from a variety of different teachers and researchers from a variety of levels, places, and backgrounds.
