American Museum of Natural History

Log Number: MA-251743-OMS-22

The American Museum of Natural History will pilot enhanced field trip experiences for elementary school teachers and students in local communities, with a focus on addressing issues of equity, access, and inclusion. The museum will partner with teachers to co-assess how existing field trip resources for teachers are used. They will co-develop new professional learning experiences guided by the New York State Culturally Responsive-Sustaining (CR-S) Education Framework that support teachers’ strategic planning of field trips through an explicit lens of equity and access. This project will inform the museum’s efforts to develop a new model for teachers at all grade levels to plan and execute impactful, rich, and meaningful field trip experiences for diverse students across New York City and the region.
