Literacy for Black History

This project addresses Canadian Black History through the use of grades nine and ten literacy lessons.  Both grades nine and ten literacy lessons are catered to: Social Science, Religion, English, Math, Moderns and Art, Science and Business.  The lessons focus on several literacy skills such as: a News Report, Reading Information Paragraphs, Writing a Series of Paragraphs, Reading Real-Life Narratives, and Reading Graphic Selections.

These lessons will allow teachers to incorporate Canadian Black History in their subject area while preparing students for the literacy test. It is a teacher-friendly resource for teachers in all disciplines to use in their classroom.
