Black History Month, Week 3: History Is Happening

Each Friday this month (or more), I'll post some ideas, folks to follow, and blog pieces about Black history, the work Black teachers are doing and how they are engaging in this month with their students.

  • Theresa Sutton of BeingReese has an amazing round up of activities-- from field trips to multiple book-and-film lists-- to celebrate and engage with Black History Month with younger children.
  • NPR's Code Switch had a twitter chat on "The Obama Effect" with #NPRObamaEffect. Some of the threads and questions could be interesting to bring into our own classroom discussions about race and identity.

Finally, an important reminder for all teachers from Education Post: "I Had to Admit My Own Racial Prejudice to Become a Better Teacher."
