black history month 2019
It's wild to think that I've been teaching for six years, which means this will be the sixth annual Black History Month program I have organized at my school. Students are currently busy conducting research in order to produce posters that will be on display at our event at the end of the month and as a whole school, we are participating in a door decorating contest to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of notable individuals. I'm always excited to expose my students to individuals they may have never heard of before and try to shy away from the widely accepted "canon" of notable Black Americans so that students can learn about and appreciate the everyday richness of Black History that isn't always tied to fame. I'm eager to share their projects later this week and for now will leave you with my current bulletin board and the project exemplar I created as a model for their projects based on the supremely famous and magical Toni Morrison :)
