Education Programs Intern El Museo offers a variety of resources that allow K-12 and adult program educators to link classroom curricula and learning standards with themes and concepts from the museum’s exhibitions and cultural programs. The Education Programs Intern will work on developing educator resources for the Around the Block program and Día de los Muertos programs. These annual programs focus on both the cultural traditions of Latin American communities and on the history of the neighborhoods where they take place. These guides include research materials, lesson plans, and worksheets or templates for teachers to use in the classroom. In order to develop, write, and edit these resources, the intern will collaborate with Education and Curatorial departments.
This project directly responds to the needs of teachers in our community and provides an opportunity for the student to design materials that help strengthen the linkages between El Museo and the schools the museum serves.
Qualifications The Education Programs Intern will need to have excellent research and writing skills and an interest in curriculum design. He/she should have a knowledge of or willingness to learn about Common Core.
