Black History Month am GNW
Black History Month, also known as African American History Month, takes place every February to honor the accomplishments of Black people in the United States/in Canada and the important roles they have played in the past and the present.
With the Black Lives Matter protests and grades 10 and 11 dealing with topics such as racism, discrimination and identity, this month was a great opportunity to dive into history and current events. Students drew timelines of the Civil Rights Movement, created their own podcasts about Black Lives Matter and victims of police brutality and created Lapbooks about "Black Leaders" that have made an impression on them (historical figures, musicians, politicians, actors, artists etc.). They are now dealing with the novel and/or the film "The Hate You Give", which was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement.
