The New-York Historical Society is proud to introduce
A NEW HOME FOR HOMESCHOOLERS
Make history come alive for homeschoolers! With the American Musicals Project at the New-York Historical Society just for homeschoolers, students will explore five different eras in American History, coupling the power and emotional energy of American musical theater masterworks with extraordinary primary resources from our exhibitions and collections.
Each program will be both museum and classroom based, featuring clips from the musicals along with supporting museum artifacts, works of art, documents, and maps. Through this wealth of materials, students will understand the real historical and cultural context underlying these musical productions. Supplemental reading, research, creative thinking and writing will be encouraged but not required.
Classes take place on Fridays from 1:30-3 pm. Each unit includes five sessions and is recommended for ages 11-13. The fee for each five-session unit is $100.
Subscribers to all five units will receive a $50 discount.
