Our Teacher Summer Institutes feature leading scholars who present to K-12 educators and college faculty from around the region. Our cohort programs come from a better understanding of how people learn. One of the key factors in learning is the impact of community — the people whom we learn with and from.
For nearly five decades, MAAH’s education programs, collections and events have interpreted the economic, literary, educational, political, social, and cultural enterprises of early black communities. Now you can connect online to history from the Colonial period through the 19th century. Above: Henry A. Monroe (1845-1913), 54th Massachusetts Regiment Drummer Boy.
MAAH's series of hands-on, interactive activities and programs provide a history learning laboratory in which students of all ages and from across the region explore, transform, and grapple with their understanding of the past in order to support cultural, historical and visual literacy development.
