Green-Wood Cemetery will deepen and enhance its educational programming for New York City schools. Project activities will include developing four new curricula which will consist of tours of Green-Wood and pre- and post-classroom activities; conducting professional development for teachers; hiring an education director and project staff; and establishing partnerships with local Title I schools. Based on a recent needs assessment, the activities will support the Common Core Learning Standards and the New York State Learning Standards for history, and will incorporate critical thinking, document analysis (using primary source items), and evidence-based reasoning. Project themes will focus on the American Revolution, the Civil War, immigration, and entrepreneurs. A developmental evaluation process will allow educators to develop a set of outcomes for themselves and the students.
