The City Museum offers 36-hour P-Credit courses throughout the year featuring leading historians, engaging gallery tours, and hands-on workshops. 

3 P Credit Course
Mon, Jul 18, 2016
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Monday, July 18 - Saturday, July 23, 2016

Taking a Stand features historian presentations, discussions with activists, museum exhibition gallery tours, and hands-on workshops all focusing on bringing New York City’s history of social activism into the present. Each day of the course will feature a morning presentation by a historian contextualizing one of five topics: Civil Rights Activism, Environmental Justice Activism, Immigrant Activism, Labor Activism, and LGBT Activism. By participating in the course, educators will learn how to teach the study of social activism from multiple viewpoints and how to connect these complex histories to current events and social movements. Educators will leave the course with the Activist New York Educator Resource Guide of primary sources, as well as additional primary sources curated for the course. Materials and programming for the Activist New York exhibition are made possible by The Puffin Foundation.
