The Museum of the African Diaspora will expand MoAD in the Classroom an educational outreach program for Title I third-grade students in the San Francisco Bay area. The project will provide free classes and museum visits for over 2,400 students; create standards-aligned curricular resources; provide professional development workshops for teachers; and develop an online portal for any teacher to access free lesson plans, podcasts, and videos on the art and culture of the African Diaspora. The three-pronged learning experience includes visits from a teaching artist to each classroom to facilitate an exploration of contemporary art and the creation of art projects. The project team will develop additional lesson plans to expand the program to grades four through eight and programmatic success will be tracked and measured through a multifaceted evaluation approach facilitated by an external evaluation team.
