Interdisciplinary Curriculum on Heritage and Identity

A project of the Brooklyn Historical Society, Voices of Mixed Heritage: Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations is a free interdisciplinary curriculum designed for grades 6–12. Students and educators are invited to engage with the topic of mixed heritage and identity in the United States from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Students investigate the voices and representation of those who identify as mixed-heritage individuals through oral histories, archival primary sources, popular culture references, and contextualized secondary sources. Through their investigation, students will unpack complex political concepts such as race, racism, identity, equity, and self-determination. Educators may download the full curriculum at no charge from the Brooklyn Historical Society’s website.
