curated: Tess Raser’s “Wakanda Curriculum” for middle-schoolers (and everyone else)

I can’t figure out precisely who Tess Raser is — many different people pop up when I Google that name — but this is how she introduces her “Wakanda Curriculum,” a “Black Panther Film Movie Companion for Middle Grades” available for all on Google Docs:

And this is the sort of stuff you’ll find:





You don’t have to be a middle-schooler, or a student of any kind, to find this fascinating and enlightening, and a good jumping-off point for learning more about African culture and how colonialism has impacted it.
