This weekend marks Juneteenth — known in the African-American/Black community for generations, recently acknowledged and celebrated on a more national stage, Juneteenth marks the liberation of enslaved Africans in the United States.
This weekend take some time to learn more about this day and what you can do to ensure its inclusion in textbooks, and conversations on the importance of history. Find a local event, and attend too! It is through these experiences and this learning that we learn more about ourselves and all of our students.
Black History Month — these titles represent the depth desired for my instruction and learning.
These are good reads for me and good reads for my students. These books cross a range of topics, genres, and history. These books can be used in the classroom. These books can be utilized for personal reading.
I do my best to make deliberate choices to ensure a wide range of titles, authors, stories, and voices are heard/seen. Finally, I am specifically showcasing these books because I can recommend them; I have read them all and I can attest they have plenty to provide any student, any teacher, any reader.
