OAKVILLE, ON — Rubicon Publishing is pleased to announce the official launch of our Sankofa Black Heritage Series Teachers’ Guide. This teachers’ guide was created in partnership with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) Teachers
Learning and Leading and Equity departments, along with three TDSB educators whose aim was to inspire other teachers to invite students into rich and relevant literacy learning activities anchored in culturally relevant pedagogy. The best part about the Sankofa Black Heritage Series Teachers’ Guide is that we are making it available for all those who are interested, free of cost!
Sankofa Black Heritage Series is a contemporary literacy resource, which was designed to help promote understanding of the African Canadian narrative during Black History Month and throughout the entire school year. We strongly believe that the use of Black-authored and Black-centred texts in literacy learning experiences is vital for Black and non-racialized students and teachers to deepen their understanding of the incredible and complex histories, stories, and cultural legacies of people of African descent.
