Lesson planning- bringing out your creative genius, hitting all the significant points and essentials can be time-consuming. Lesson planning is probably one of your most time-consuming tasks as an educator due to the time spent researching engaging, current, and relevant pedagogy.

We are pleased to provide a time-saver for you by creating a culturally-appropriate and relevant lesson plan called Talking About Culture in the Classroom.

Use all or parts of the lesson as you see fit for your class, subject, and grade level. Talking About Culture in the Classroom is a culturally sustainable activity that values students as co-creators in learning. Create a safe, non-judgemental space in which students develop interculturality, self-awareness, and multicultural competence. Students explore learned and lived experiences with their peers and through self-reflection. 

In this lesson, you will find the learning objective, learning goals, success criteria, key terms, activities, and assessment strategies, and additional resources that include a google doc for more lesson-related ideas.

I am the Culturally Responsive Specialist for Powerful Learning Practice. Few months after graduating from teacher’s college, I hopped on a plane and headed to the far north in Ontario. I worked in a remote Ontario Indigenous community for seven years as a grade 9 and 10 teacher, the department head, and lead teacher for math and literacy for the senior division. I have a Masters of Professional Education in Curriculum and Pedagogy from the University of Western Ontario. Inspired by my lived experiences as a Black immigrant woman from the West Indies/Caribbean and my work in Indigenous education, my research focused on equity and inclusion. I also have additional qualifications in e-learning, working with students with autism, junior to intermediate grade levels, and a specialist in special education.
