Ready for African American History Month?

Are you looking for resources to support teaching African American history--this month or any other month?

The Montana Historical Society’s African Americans in Montana Heritage Resources Page includes links to two model lesson plans (fourth grade and eighth grade+) as well as a link to a PowerPoint presentation created by interpretive historian Ellen Baumler, “Profiles of African American Montanans.” You’ll find these links at the very bottom of the page, so keep scrolling.

Teachinghistory.org has created a page spotlighting some relevant resources.

The Library of Congress has pulled together a list of resources (including lesson plans) from their own collection, the National Archives, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, and the National Park Service

And here’s material from the Smithsonian.

Finally, here's a handy list of "dos and don'ts" from Teaching Tolerance on teaching black history.

Happy surfing.
