For Teachers

Offerings for Educators

Our programs offer content-rich, visually engaging, and interactive experiences that support the New York State social studies standards and align with the Common Core Standards. Our trained Museum Educators used inquiry-based discussion to guide teachers and students as they explore primary sources, as well as facilitate creative student learning activities. We offer in-person programs hosted at the Museum or in your school, as well as remote learning programs year round.
