Film: How one School is seeking to “build a bridge” for their community
December 30 2016
DC Public Schools is creating a new initiative to build curriculum for African American History. Ayanna Muhammad’s class will serve as a pilot project connecting Museum Studies with a project based curriculum for the course.
The goal is to turn their high school campus into a living museum by training students in the careers of a museum. She will share their process of creating the Living Museum, their community partnership experience, interdisciplinary (history, art, math, research writing) curriculum and career exposure series.
