The Miami Art Deco District: Using Buildings To Tell Stories

The Miami Beach Art Deco Distric: Using Buildings to Tell Stories

Design Challenge:

Develop a weeklong seminars gave K-12 educators the opportunity to engage in intensive study of important topics in American history by using the Art Deco District in Miami Beach as the object of study. The workshops benefited teachers of U.S. history, literature, art, geography, social studies, American studies, and other areas. This project was Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Claudia’s Involvement:

I collaborated to develop the curriculum, manage workshop application, organization, and logistics, as well as teach part of the course.
