As you watch, please answer the following questions.
Why do people enslave others?
How many slaves are there today?
Which two countries do not have any cases of slavery?
What are the slaves used for?
Why are there so many slaves today?
How do they capture the slaves?
How expensive are slaves today?
How much would it cost to liberate the world’s slaves?
What is this money comparable to that we spend as a country?
10.Why was the freedom of the slaves in America a failure?
Now that you have answered the questions on modern day slavery, prepare a short 1-2 minute speech on modern day slavery and how we can end it.
Think beyond what you have just heard. Think about education. Not just education for the poor but education for us in the developed world who do not even realize that this terrible industry still exists in all but two countries in the world.
If you need to write some notes for your speech, write them on the lines on the next page.
