Centering African Proverbs, Indigenous Folktales, and Cultural Stories in Curriculum

Units and Lesson Plans for Inclusive Education

By George J. Sefa Dei, Mairi McDermott


In Centering African Proverbs, Indigenous Folktales, and Cultural Stories in Curriculum, skilled experts George J. Sefa Dei and Mairi McDermott develop effective ways of delivering education to the evermore-diverse groups of learners in schools. This new edited collection aims to improve educational practices in pluralistic contexts by substantively engaging African proverbs, Indigenous folktales, and cultural stories in curricular and pedagogical decisions.

Each contributor works with a different proverb, folktale, or cultural story as a core text for a unique unit of their design. Along with detailed notes for the instructor, each contributor writes a reflection on the process of designing the unit with anti-racism theory as a guiding principle. This innovative volume will serve as a wonderful companion to courses within Bachelor of Education, Masters of Education, and Masters of Teaching programs across Canada and the United States.
