The independent nations that emerged after the collapse of the Soviet Union comprise a complex and ever-changing region, and understanding it is more important than ever. Scholarship produced at the Davis Center and materials held by Harvard (and beyond!) can help bring context and insights about Russia and Eurasia to your students.
Curriculum Development Opportunities
The Davis Center outreach team is eager to work with classroom teachers to develop new classroom materials, especially those that, whenever possible, build and expand on existing physical and digital resources. We're also eager to build out a resource library of lesson plans, classroom activities and exercises that can be shared widely with classroom teachers across the country. So please be in touch if you have a resource that you have developed that you think would be worth sharing!
The Davis Center, in partnership with the Lviv Center for Urban History, is looking for teachers to participate in a new curriculum development project "On Ukraine." The project will allow a select group of educators to work collaboratively to develop curricula that draws on the materials published on the Lviv Center's Reesources platform. Applications for this project are due March 15, 2024.
The Davis Center has developed several curricular modules specifically for use in the K-14 classroom. These modules are intended to be multimodal and multidisciplinary. Please be in touch if you are looking for resources or materials on a specific topic within Russian and Eurasian studies or are eager to develop new curriculum on the region for your students.
Women played critical roles in the Russian Revolution. This curricular module brings this history to life through the stories of female activists.
