The Ferguson Verdict: Toronto Poet Dwayne Morgan Responds


In the spirit of culturally relevant pedagogy I'm sharing the following poem as a tool for critical dialogue with your students. Please ensure the content is age appropriate before sharing and consider what pre and post activities, as well as other learning tools, could make the recent events in Ferguson part of a powerful learning opportunity in your classrooms. R.I.P. Michael Brown and the many other young, black males whose lives continue to be taken away from us.

Children's Grief Awareness Day


Hello All,

November 20th is Children's Grief Awareness Day. The purpose of this day is to change the culture around children and grief by:

fostering an awareness of the experience of grieving children and youth, such as feeling isolated and "different" than peers

raising awareness of the important roll that support (both formal and informal) can play in influencing the emotional well-being of children and youth who are grieving
