SPRING 2013 P-CREDIT COURSE
Activist New York Staging the History of Social Activism in the Classroom
A SIX SESSION P-CREDIT COURSE
Activist New York: Staging the History of Social Activism in the Classroom explores the drama of social activism in New York City from the 17th century right up to the present. The course will explore the history of social change movements in New York City through the lens of the Museum’s groundbreaking exhibition, Activist New York. This exciting new exhibit illustrates social activism in New York City from 1650 to the present day using multimedia presentations, artifacts, documents and political cartoons. Educators will spend six days immersed in stimulating discussions, interactive activities and hands-on lessons with artifacts and images from the Museum’s rich collection. The content of this program will cover topics such as slavery and abolition, immigration, civil rights, suffrage and labor movements, and the built environment. By participating in the course, grade 4-12 educators will learn how to teach the study of social activism from multiple viewpoints, examining opposing sides of complex debates and charting the diverse perspectives that existed within activist movements. Each morning of the six-day course will be devoted to content and primary source investigation following a chronological overview of the history of social activism in New York City (“Case Studies” and “Document Inquiries”). During the afternoon workshops (“Staging History”), participants will create theatrical responses to the content and primary sources introduced. Each afternoon workshop will focus on a distinct theatrical form that educators will utilize to bring informational texts and primary resources to life. This integration of theatrical expression and curriculum content will support teachers as they work toward aligning curriculum and instructional priorities with Common Core State Standards by focusing on using informational texts and documents in creative and unique ways. (Grades 4-12, 3 P Credits)
