To introduce this unit, I have my students watch the 2017 documentary “Step” by Amanda Lipitz.
This unit was designed for a grade 10 class. It explores the art that came out of the black community as well as black history. There are different assignments and evaluation situations (and a really creative final project) included! IT may have to be edited, seeing as it has my school's name and logo on it.
***** the video for Viola Desmond can be found on curio.ca. It is a 3 minute video that resembles a music video. It explains the story of Viola Desmond in a fun way. The questions that are in the package are equally designed for an IBO evaluation.
