Since 2016, Melanin Origins has provided leaders in education with quality learning materials that children of all backgrounds so desperately need. Understanding the struggle of convincing school districts to fund black history initiatives, the global publishing company has afforded teachers across the nation an opportunity to access four weeks of instruction on the lives of Ida B. Wells, Booker T. Washington, Madam C.J. Walker, and W.E.B. Du Bois.

The Black History Curriculum guide contains TEKS / Common Core based lesson plans that meet national English-Language Arts standards and cover reading, writing, word study, and social studies for Grade One.

These materials are perfect for use any time of year as they focus on topics relevant to all students at all times, and the added benefit is that these materials provide diverse and culturally responsive images and topics for students. Hearing these stories and studying these historical figures will provide students the opportunity to see possibility in all people especially themselves while also helping them understand the basics of literacy and social studies.

Additionally, this curriculum is designed to be used in part or in full based on the demands/needs of each individual classroom. There are daily lesson plans for each of the four books that can be used interchangeably.

This package includes English-Language Arts lesson plans from four of Melanin Origins’ Black History Books: 1) Brick by Brick: a Snippet of The Life of Booker T. Washington, 2) Power in My Pen: a Snippet of The Life of Ida B. Wells, 3) Louisiana Belle: a Snippet of The Life of Madam C.J. Walker, & 4) Education is Power: a Snippet of The Life of W.E.B. Du Bois.
