Teaching Black History

Advancing the inclusion of the Black Canadian experience in the curriculum

In this 2-day course, classroom teachers will learn how to integrate Black Canadian history throughout the Ontario curriculum beyond Black History Month. Educators will gain valuable content knowledge and learn inquiry-based approaches to teaching Black history across the Ontario curriculum. This course will support teachers in enhancing their knowledge and application of the six historical thinking concepts and embedding the principles of inclusion, diversity, and equity and into their teaching practice through the inclusion of the African Canadian experience. Educator, Black historian, and curriculum developer Natasha Henry will demonstrate how Black Canadian history doesn’t have to be a stand-alone unit, and how it can be incorporated throughout the curriculum. This engaging course is designed for J/I (grades 3-10) teachers.
