The Black Botanical Legacy: Bringing a new focus into your classroom with real scientists

Join Sharon Graper, Director of Education at Holden Forests & Gardens to learn how educators can use Holden's groundbreaking free virtual lecture series highlighting Black Botanists to teach and inspire others to pursue a career in plants and highlight pathways to diversity and inclusion in botanical sciences.

The 10 recorded lectures cover a broad range of botanical disciplines, delve into the historical legacy of formally trained and self-taught Black Botanists who inspired others to pursue a career in plants, and highlight pathways toward diversity and inclusion in botanical sciences

To further support teachers in incorporating the Black Botanical Legacy Lecture Series into their classroom curriculums Holden Forests & Gardens has designed classroom activities that were developed in conjunction with each lecturer.

The activities are divided into three sections so that teachers are better able to tailor their connection to the lectures in the way that best enables them to meet their goals and objectives.

Comprehend and Connect: Ways to reflect on the lecture, its content and applications to the student’s life

To Do: Activities that support the lecture content. These are either hands on and inquiry in nature or ask the student to use data to analyze a situation.

Follow Up: In-depth study and independent work that makes a larger connection to part of the topic discussed.
