What is the difference between history and the past? Whose stories are told and whose are forgotten or ignored? Who gets to decide which histories are shared? How does where we live affect how we live? Students who participate in our school programs tackle these and other big picture questions to understand their own role in the history of our city, state and country.
HistoryMiami Museum’s school programs are led by trained Museum Educators and designed to provide age and grade-level appropriate experiences, while focusing on different learning modalities. Critical thinking is elicited as students compare and contrast the past and present and are encouraged to visualize and question what the future should be.
All programs correlate to state educational standards. Programs also address curriculum areas beyond social studies, including language arts, mathematics and science where possible
