The Davis Center is committed to developing curricular resources for classroom use. Our goal is to make these modules flexible so they can be used by a variety of teachers in a variety of classrooms. These resources are meant to be highly modular (they can serve teachers at multiple entry points) and multi-modal (they make use of a variety of image, text, audio and video resources).
In general, the core of each document includes: a content essay, classroom applications and approaches, a bibliography and list of further resources, as well as connections to Massachusetts Frameworks and Common Core Standards. Each can be viewed in part or whole online or can be downloaded as a PDF. Finally, each module has one or more digital resource(s) associated with it, be it an interview with a scholar, a close-reading of a text, image or film clip, or footage from an important historical event. We hope that these additional digital resources help you better connect with your students and deepen student understanding. If you would like assistance using these modules or introducing this material to your students, please feel free to contact us.
