Title: A Walk in Their Shoes: Exploring the Underground Railroad
Digital Tool: The Underground Railroad: The Journey
Digital Tool Description: In this interactive tool, students are presented with real life situations that a slave might have faced when attempting to escape on the Underground Railroad. In these situations, students must decide if yes they would or no they wouldn't go forth with the options presented to them. Students are introduced to multiple people who were instrumental in the success of the Underground Railroad, such as Harriet Tubman, Thomas Garrett, Frederick Douglas, and Susan B. Anthony. If followed all the way thorough, students will conclude their journey in Canada as free citizens.
