For Teachers

Are you a teacher or community educator?

Welcome to Learning Across Generations, a k-12 curriculum offering students a vibrant introduction to local, Black history. Developed in collaboration with a team of community mentors, Learning Across Generations is dedicated to disrupting conventional histories and cultivating rich, intergenerational exchange. Our staff leads creative, immersive workshops in schools and on site in Northside.

We are also proud to offer you Learning Across Generations Online, three virtual audio-visual, hands-on workshops for elementary, middle and high school students based on material in From the Rock Wall. Each comes with detailed instructions for teachers—and a new world of local Black history for students.

If you’d like to host a workshop, join the Community Mentor Team, or partner with us to engage students in the history beneath their feet, write to [email protected].
