K-12 teachers, school leaders, and curriculum experts with a range of experience, subject areas, and interests. Your school or organization does not need to be affiliated with the NLM for you to participate.
The TAG will provide critical input for the creation of new field trip programs, teacher professional development opportunities and resources, as well as the evolution of our flagship Young Heroes Outreach Program. TAG will advise on curriculum development, program delivery, instruction, practices, pacing, and resources. The group also will provide insight on what makes an ideal NLM-school partnership in empowering students and educators with 21st-century skills and best practices in student-led civics learning.
Our first meeting will take place (via Zoom) in early June.
The NLM is embarking on an ambitious new strategic plan; our work with schools remains critical to our mission and our work. We are committed to working alongside educators and experts as we expand our programs and create resources for the future.
The group will meet 4-6 times per year (virtually in 2021) and will be invited to participate in focus groups, task forces, and other initiatives as they arise. TAG participants will be expected to be in communication with NLM’s school programs team and will be encouraged to turn-key ideas and practices in their schools whenever possible. In thanks for your time, we will provide refreshments (in the form of a GrubHub gift card), complimentary admission to Museum programs, and letters acknowledging your participation as a Teacher Advisor.
To express your interest in participating, please complete and submit this short form no later than 5PM on April 30. We will contact you with details about the first meeting, which will take place in early June. *All fields are required.
Our newest exhibition, Strength & Fragility: The Story of the NLM, highlights the life of the Museum’s founder Irvin J. Borowsky, and how his belief in universal equality and liberty, as well as his passion for contemporary glass art, led to the creation of the National Liberty Museum. Strength & Fragility includes engaging archival material, stunning glass artwork, and immersive soundscapes. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a magnificent 9-foot-high glass canopy by Ulla Darni, entitled “The Peace Portal.” It features a custom sound bath experience, Seeds of Love, written and produced by Philadelphia-based sound artist Luna Maye, in collaboration with composer Alfiya Glow.
