[room 209m] week twenty book prep

We’re back after winter break, which means our school is gearing up for our African American Heritage Celebration at the end of February. I know it seems early, but it takes a lot of time to get our things ready before we can create a wonderful video to share with the class.

In preparation for all this, I went on a library binge and borrowed a ridiculous number of biographies from the San Francisco Public Library. Our school’s African American Heritage Celebration this year has to do with Important African American Educators: Black Minds Matter, so I checked out as many lower level biographies as I could related to this theme as well as just some famous African Americans that would be good for my students to learn about.

I’m excited for them to start learning about some of these great minds like Mae Jemison, Rosa Parks, Ida B Wells, Charles Drew, Michelle Obama, Barack Obama, and Thurgood Marshall. Now if only I can figure out how to present this information in an understandable way that the students can then learn about and present their learning in a visual way ………
