Educational Programming

Inspired by the Museum’s home in historic Old City Philadelphia, just down the street from Constitution Hall and the Liberty Bell, our educational programming seeks to understand the roles people play in creating and sustaining liberty.

How does liberty work? What happens when it doesn’t?  What is your part in the story of liberty?

 

Educational Programming

Liberty education presents a set of ideas and skills at the intersection of civics education and character education. It entails thinking critically about such topics as diversity, inclusion, identity, conflict resolution, communication, rights and responsibilities, social change, community outreach, advocacy, and character strengths.


Across all programs, when engaging with our curriculum, learners consider how their everyday actions enhance or detract from their own liberty, and the liberty of others. They discover the personal and social power of character strengths they already possess. They become empowered to make the changes they want to see in their communities and in the world. Learners of all ages explore our unique and exciting content through an array of educational programs, including student tours, visits to your school, in-depth learning experiences, leadership and team building programsprofessional development and much more.
