Curriculum and Lesson Support
- The Pulitzer Center has developed curricula to support the teaching of the 1619 Project for all grades.
- Teaching for Black Lives, edited by Lewis and Clark College professor Diane Watson, former public-school teacher Jesse Hagopian and former public-school teacher Wayne Au, grows directly from the movement for Black lives. Anti-Black racism constructs Black students and Black people in general. The resources provided in this book demonstrate ways educators connect curriculum to young people's lives and root their concerns and daily experiences in what is taught and how classrooms are set up. The editors say, "The ferocity of racism in the US against Black minds and bodies demands that teachers fight back." This book highlights the hope and beauty of student activism and collective action.
