What’s in each month? Can I have a sneak peek?
Each download includes at least three (often four) age-appropriate lessons w/ activities that help you talk about Black History in an interactive manner. There is also a list of vocabulary words and a child’s reading and supply list. In addition to the lessons for children, parents receive a guidance sheet and suggested reading list for themselves.
Sorry we do not provide sneak peeks for our curriculum but you can get a feel for our work here:
Where’s my download?
It’s with your emailed purchase receipt. Open the email and follow the link to download. Your link to download will expire 7 days from the date of purchase so don’t delay. This email may be in your spam/junk folder. Still having issues? Send an email to email@example.com with your receipt number.
When you say 6 and under, does this include infants and/or toddlers?
Personally, I believe that exposing your child to Black History as a baby or toddler is important. However, the activities are interactive so I recommend most of them for children ages 3-6.
Why is the 7-12 curriculum more expensive?
The 7-12 curriculum is more than a downloadable pdf. There are video lectures, quizzes, and a workbook for each quarter. This also means your child is expected to work more independently.
Why do you charge for this curriculum?
Historically, Black women have been asked to give away their labor for free via the forces of white supremacy that have exploited Black bodies for centuries. As a result, I am politically opposed to giving away my creative and intellectual labor. It is critically important to me that my children understand that their mother values herself and her family enough to ask for equitable compensation at all times.
In less academic terms, I spend weeks sometimes months doing research, creating presentations, and recording videos depending on the project. I often have to spend weekend mornings away from my family to get things done. I wake up early or go to bed late to get things done. I ignore texts and phone calls from my mother and siblings to get work done some days. This is my part-time job. It is how we pay our son’s preschool tuition. It is how we will pay for a sitter to help me once our new child is born. It is how we pay for extracurricular activities.
I can’t afford BHIAH right now. How can I participate?
Our goal is for every child to benefit from this curriculum and thanks to the donations we receive sometimes we’re able to provide a set number of monthly packets to those who may not be able to afford to purchase. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org w/ subject line “BHIAH Scholarship.
Can I sponsor a friend?
Yes, send an email to email@example.com w/ subject line BHIAH sponsorship.
I don’t have a child in the covered age category. Will you release other age categories?
Yes, each year BHIAH will expand age-wise. There will also be special topics for different ages released throughout the year. Be sure to subscribe to the Mamademics Newsletter to say up to date.
Can I use these activities in my classroom?
Absolutely! The activities and topics provided can definitely be expanded for larger group discussions and/or small group activities. My son’s Pre-K teacher has enjoyed finding ways to incorporate the curriculum into her classroom.
