Join fellow educators as we roll out our new curriculum for visiting school groups to the Ruggles Center. We put the same vibrant primary sources used by historians into students' hands and guide them toward constructing their own narratives. They create short biographies of the compelling figures who gathered in Florence in the 1840s to end slavery and model a social order that worked for everyone. Students then present their findings to their classmates on the very sites where events transpired. We will sample the curriculum with a short walk near our museum followed by a discussion of how it addresses objectives in the classroom as well as the new State Frameworks.
