Museum Grants for African American History and Culture

The Museum of the African Diaspora will expand "MoAD in the Classroom" a visual literacy and arts outreach program offered to Title I and under-served third grade students in the San Francisco Bay Area. During the two year project, the museum will provide free classes and museum visits for more than 2,750 students. The museum will also create new standards-aligned curriculum to teach about the art and culture of the African Diaspora and develop an online portal for teachers with access to free lesson plans, podcasts and videos. The museum will also host 40 hours of art integration professional development workshops for Title I teachers. These new initiatives will draw on research that coordinated school visits to museums increase children's confidence and ability to retain knowledge while adding to their understanding of critical content areas.
