Curriculum Showcase – June 2, 2023

On June 2, 2023, teachers and students from high schools across the state shared highlights of their experiences in the second year of implementation of the African American/Black and Puerto Rican/Latino Course of Studies model curriculum. This full-day, virtual event was attended by current and future implementing teachers, students, parents, and administrators, as well as board of education members, community stakeholders, legislators, curriculum developers, and Advisory Group members.

Fantastic opportunity to see the success and accomplishments of early implementers.


I will now be able to recommend the course to students in the future in order to build the course so that the majority of students can be exposed to the class.

I loved the creativity that teachers are using to engage students. I serve on the State Board of Ed and while I do not work everyday with students, their participation in todays activities were VERY powerful and codify why we are doing this!!!

Begin thinking about how I will implement this course in my school.

Very impressive work by the students and their teachers. As part of the advisory, the hope was that this class would have a tremendous impact and these presentations clearly demonstrated that it has.

The great thing about the curriculum was that it was filled with great resources. It was a wonderful experience this year teaching the class. I feel very lucky to have had this experience.
