At this point, we know many of the lessons that are in our textbooks or that we were taught might be white-washed or just a flat out lie. Educators and caregivers, we can get ahead of that by doing some research of our own. We can even involve our students in the process! History should not be memorizing dates and random facts. "History is furious debate informed by evidence and reason." - James W. Loewen.

7.27.21 My dear cousin Dr. Andrew Edmund Dowe would have been 35 today. I miss him so much. His smile made you smile. His laugh made you laugh. And he was one of my biggest cheerleaders. Noah loved him so much and I'm sad Jonah will never remember meeting him. I was forever inspired by his heart and kindness towards others. I was proud of the work he did working at Yale for LGBTQ+ youth, especially queer kids of color. He loved to laugh, travel, dance, and bake bread. Happy birthday in Heaven, bestie. Until we meet again. ❤️❤️❤️

We (@apron_education and I) received feedback on our Indigenous Peoples' Day free resource and didn't notice it until today. We got a 1 star rating from one reviewer out of thousands, and it really irritated me. It is absolutely disgusting how some people are fine teaching children lies and get upset at the truth. The true account of Columbus terrorizing Indigenous Peoples' was called "indoctrination". What? Then what are the lies? Because it wasn't a cute craft with Columbus and a stereotypical native person smiling, this is indoctrination? Just because you don't like the truth doesn't mean it isn't still the truth. Some people cling so hard to the lies they were taught in school that they can't accept the truth even when they "research it themselves". 🙄🙄🙄 Do you think on his death bed, reflecting on the awful things he'd done, Columbus was like, "One day kids in the U.S. will create fun crafts about me."? I should have added the last page of our ebook is where we ask the children what they would rather celebrate Columbus Day or Indigenous Peoples' Day. We do not tell them what day we think it should be. We present the age-appropriate facts and let them have discussions amongst themselves.

A shameless, but important plug for @apron_education and I's thematic units. We call them Not Your Average because one scroll through Instagram during the school year and a quick search on TPT had us realizing that many of the thematic units being used in preschool and up to 3rd grade were looking almost exactly alike. Many of them are very well thought out and incredible units, but do our students really need more of the same for three or four years in a row? One of my best friends had a daughter in kindergarten and another one in second grade and said when she cleaned out their backpacks, she often couldn't tell whose work was whose when it came to the social studies/science crafts. LaNesha says it best, in primary grades, we can substitute pumpkins and apples for really any thematic unit that we have going on. It all seems to be a lot of the same thing: labeling, coloring, flipbooks, and the same few investigations K-3. We started this line as a joke and then we turned it into a real thing because it was fascinating. The next time you're planning for a cute thematic unit, type in your topic + economics, or + civics, or + history and if you're like us, you'll be amazed at the whole world of more we can expose our students too! We have quite a few units if you're looking for inspiration, premade lessons, or if you're just curious about how we made this work. When I tell you these were some of my students' favorite lessons, I'm not kidding! 🏷️They are available on my website.

LaNesha and I often encourage teachers to make sure they are including stories from Africa in their social studies lessons that are more than just enslavement and animal units. Man, I'll even take a lesson where students learn Africa is made up of 54 different countries and you can't just say Africa and think it doesn't matter to specify what country you're talking about. Many teachers are unsure of where to start. We get it, look at U.S. American public schools; they've been censoring true history since the very beginning. Even if teachers do have the time to Google this information and educate themselves, they may not have time to compile it all into a student-friendly lesson. Also though, don't think you have to have a cute and perfectly put together lesson in order to talk about it with your kids. You can just tell them about the cool history you researched that weekend. Your passion and the truth will engage them for sure. Teaching students traditional lessons and adding a new perspective (or a true perspective) and teaching students brand new stories that we weren't taught in school is a passion of ours. Were you ever taught about the Walls of Benin and had the brilliance of the Edo people highlighted in your social studies lessons?

@apron_education and I love a good picture book. They're a great way to teach kids about the world. We can introduce students to real settings, different cultural backgrounds, and real issues people might have to face. Dr. Rudine Sims Bishop said it best when she described books as windows and mirrors. Books that are mirrors contain storylines, characters, and experiences that you can see yourself in. You will feel seen and heard after reading a book that is a mirror. A book that is a window helps you see into the life or experience of someone else. You may not be able to relate, but you can learn and grow from that storyline or the books' characters. You can learn empathy and gain understanding and perspective about an experience someone else relates to. LaNesha and I are constantly on the lookout for a picture book to use for a read aloud or just for a fun story to enjoy with our students. We created a free ebook to help educators and caregivers introduce Dr. Rudine Sims Bishop's concept of books as windows and mirrors to students. Portfolio pages are included for students to keep track of the books they have read and think about if this book was a mirror or a window for them and why.

There's just something about finishing a picture book and being able to tell the children that heard it, "Guess what? This is actually based on the culture of real people." We have enjoyed reading about the hair traditions of Agan and Satya in this book. It was inspired by the author's husband and daughter and it gave me all the feels. 😍😍😍 Thanks for this one @raakstarwrites @littlebrownyoungreaders

My friend @tell.a.graham and I were just discussing the disconnect between math we learned at school in the U.S. and the math that our parents were taught in their home countries (Haiti and Antigua & Barbuda). As first generation Americans, we began to think of our parents' math as the wrong way. I recall needing help with homework and being frustrated that my mom didn't know how to do it the "American" way. I finished the math problems the way my mom knew how to do it and even though the answers were correct, my teacher made me redo them because the work was wrong. This only led to me doubling down in my thinking that the math from my parents' country was wrong, or somehow less than. Valuing culture in the classroom is something @apron_education and I made a priority to do starting day 1. You can't be culturally responsive to a culture you don't know anything about. All of our culture lessons are now officially being offered on my new website, 🎉which launched today🎉 (readlikearockstarteaching.com) and on TpT in Education with an Apron's store.

One of the many things that I love about our Perspective Through Picture Book lessons for K/1 are the time we take to build background knowledge that will help students understand the text better. Our students are always able to make connections to the text and almost always have been able to use the perspective/lesson learned from the text in real life. @apron_education And I use our knowledge of depth and complexity paired with higher order thinking questions to make sure that we prepare questions that are going to help students really understand the key concepts from the text. We choose books that are one or two years above our students grade level and make sure we give them what they need to access it and truly comprehend what's going on to build strong readers. Teaching with a slideshow is something I've always done because it's what my mentor teacher did and I saw how much it helped the students stay engaged and focused compared to other classrooms I had observed. They also help ME stay on track and remember everything that I wanted to say! You can find all of our PTPB lessons on TeachersPayTeachers.com in the store Education with an Apron. What's your favorite picture book that teaches kids a powerful real world lesson?
