Challenge: Commemorate and amplify history’s underrepresented stories
Commemorating Heritage months broadens the scope of student historical knowledge, adds to the picture of our past and provides an understanding of the richness and historical influences of our diverse cultures and underrepresented stories. Through this challenge learners gain a deeper and more inclusive perspective of who we are and the resiliency behind our stories.
Big Idea: Commemoration
Essential Question: How can we use heritage months to recognize, share and amplify underrepresented stories.
Challenge: Commemorate and amplify history’s underrepresented stories.
