Choices’s Course on the Haitian Revolution

The Haitian Revolution: The Choices Program., a course.Possibly some of you knew of this resource already. I have seen it before too, but today I stopped and looked at it more carefully after browsing tens of pages of documents purporting to summarize, sketch or introduce students to the topic of the Haitian Revolution.  I found it useful.

It was published five years ago under the auspices of the Choice Program and Brown University.  It is copyrighted, and the document is protected indeed.  Email the company if you plan to use it in the classroom.

It is formatted with lesson plans similar to those used in high School. So, I suppose it could be used there too.  But I looked at it with eyes for using it in an undergraduate course. In addition to the student text, it has the instructor’s guidebook, which comes with all sort of teaching aids: lists of terms, timelines, quizzes, exams, etc.

Of the online resources I have seen claiming to help you teach the history of the Haitian Revolution (product of the Haitian Turn, perhaps), this one stands out (while in another formats: “The Other Revolution” and Alyssa G. Sepinwall’s Introduction are also useful).

The booklet credits the following individuals:

Anthony Bogues. Harmon Family Professor, Professor of Africana Studies and Political Science, Brown University

Donald Cosentino, Professor of Culture and Performance, University of California, Los Angeles

Alex Dupuy, Class of 1958 Distinguished Professor of Sociology, Wesleyan University

Sharon Larson, Adjunct Assistant Professor of French, Providence College

Katherine Smith, University of California, Los Angeles

Patrick Sylvain, Visiting Lecturer in Latin American Studies, Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies., Brown University

Special thanks to Kana Shen, Brown University ’10, for her assistance in developing and writing this unit.

The Haitian Revolution is part of a continuing series on international public policy issues. New units are published each academic year and all units are updated regularly.
