Pollyanna Racial Literacy Curriculum
Greene Street Friends School utilizes the Pollyanna Racial Literacy curriculum in all grades, believing anti-racism work is at the very heart of our mission and community.
Pollyanna is a K-8 Racial Literacy Curriculum that has been designed to help students gain knowledge about race as it has been constructed in the United States. While Pollyanna provides a complete scope and sequence, we are also finding synergies with the curriculum and our Life Skills social emotional curriculum. We are fortunate to have a strong base upon which to build and supplement. Sample lessons in the Pollyanna curriculum include:
1st Grade: How our differences can be our strengths.
5th Grade: How has “immigration” impacted the US?
8th Grade: What is Racism? How does Racism impact individuals and society?
