February is Black History Month in Canada, which provides an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of black Canadians and reflect on the stories, experiences and accomplishments of Canada's black community. To mark this occasion, Curio.ca has pulled together a selection of teacher
resource guides, videos and audio series that honour black history in Canada. These resources are intended to complement teachers’ Black History Month activities and initiatives.
In particular, we wish to highlight the Burgundy Jazz Teacher Resource Guide, a must-read resource aimed at educators at the elementary (Grades 6-8) and secondary school levels. It is designed to link to a variety of subject fields, including Arts Education (Music), Social Sciences (Geography and History) and Language Arts, while leveraging Media Education/Media Literacy, critical thinking and Citizenship Education.
