P Credit Course: People of New York

This online course draws on the Museum’s groundbreaking exhibitions to examine the past, present, and future of New York through the lives of New Yorkers who have shaped and been shaped by the city they call home.  

Educators examine how the individual choices of New Yorkers have molded the city we live in, unpack how the urban environment has impacted people both past and present, and discover hidden voices that shine a light on New York’s array of diverse communities and neighborhoods. Through online lesson plan and oral history workshops, discussions, guest lectures, and writing exercises, educators gain a deeper understanding of the city’s history and find connections between their students’ experiences and those of New Yorkers past and present.  

People of New York offers 3 P Credits and 45 CTLE hours. The course is broken into modules that each involve both synchronous and asynchronous learning.

About P Credit Courses

The Museum of the City of New York offers Professional Credit (P Credit) Courses throughout the year. These courses are open to all educators, including educators not eligible for credits through the New York City Department of Education. 

P Credit in-service courses are offered in conjunction with the New York City Department of Education’s After School Professional Development Program (ASPDP) and can be applied towards teachers' 30+ salary differential. ASPDP courses may also be used by teachers and paraprofessionals toward the NYS 175 hours of Professional Development requirement, as long as their principal approves. For more information on DOE salary differentials, please visit their website.

The Museum of the City of New York is also a CTLE certified provider.
