The National Women’s History Museum is seeking K–12 educators to participate in its summer “For Educators, By Educators” Curriculum Resources Development Program. Participants will create K–12 lesson plans and other classroom resources for inclusion in the museum’s online compendium of digital learning materials to enliven teaching, enrich curriculum connections, raise understanding and appreciation, and harness key themes of equality and activism that are the foundation of women’s impacts on our national history and that still impact our society and national dialogue today.
This year the museum is seeking submissions that take into consideration the following needs: resources adaptable for a diverse set of learners in a single classroom; materials reinforcing primary source analysis skills-building; lessons connecting to current events; “bite-sized” materials of variable length (15, 20, 30 minutes) utilizing credible sources easily found through online research; lessons incorporating a diverse array of teaching techniques, such as “See, Think, Wonder” and “Think, Pair, Share”; and materials promoting cross-curricular learning.
Suggested themes and topics include racial justice, multiple perspectives, civic responsibility, socioeconomic issues, empathy, leadership, and women’s biographic examples that exemplify the themes.
Educators will receive an honorarium of $300 per lesson plan, resource (timeline, writing/resource exercise, online exhibit), or biography. Submissions are due by August 7, 2022, to be included in the 2022–23 academic year’s online resources. For questions or proposals, contact Emma Rothberg, Associate Educator of Digital Learning and Innovation (firstname.lastname@example.org cc: email@example.com)
