Incorporating Black History into schooling, lesson plans, and daily life

February is Black History Month; a full month celebrating all of the incredible historical contributions that Black people and communities have made to our country and to our world. We hope you will join Apraxia Kids during this month (and beyond) and learn from, listen to, and support our Black communities. 

 

There’s no time like the present to learn about and recognize the contributions and achievements of the African American community throughout history. It’s also a great opportunity to incorporate these lessons into your daily schooling routine and daily life to teach with intention and honor traditions, history, culture, arts, and more from Black communities around the world. 

 

Our wonderful Diversity & Inclusion Task Force members have compiled some great resources to help you get started! Read on for lesson plans, worksheets, fun activities, and so much more!
