Juneteenth Teaching Resources [web resource]
Juneteenth, celebrated June 19, marks the day enslaved Texans learned they were free in June of 1865. While the history of the holiday includes the injustice of enslavement, Juneteenth should also be understood in the context of Black people’s fight for justice and freedom.
If you are looking for resources to teach about this important milestone, Learning for Justice is a great place to start.
Among the many free resources are learning plans built by teachers. Learning for Justice learning plans reflect backward design and are grounded in Learning for Justice’s Social Justice standards (Learn more about the Social Justice standards framework). Simply enter “Juneteenth” in the search field on the Learning Plans page for a selection of learning plans with recommended classroom resources.
The Learning Plan Builder allows you to combine the Learning for Justice Social Justice Standards, Common Core-aligned literacy strategies and student performance tasks with windows-and-mirrors texts from the Student Text library. The result is a comprehensive, literacy-based plan that is both rigorous and relevant.
