These links to instructional plans were developed by teachers and were inspired by the 2017 African American History Calendar honoring the victims and survivors of the Mother Emanuel tragedy of June 2016. The 2017 African American History Calendar is unlike the previous years’ calendars allowing for a respectful approach of developing lessons inspired by the tragedy and the on-going healing. Each instructional plan is aligned to the 2011 South Carolina Social Studies Academic Standards. These suggested instructional plans can be used as-is, adapted or used as a model of an instructional plan but they are not required.
