The Old North Foundation is looking for groups to participate in a 90-minute activity and discussion to get feedback on our new program, Sacred Seats.
What is Sacred Seats?
We are embracing the untold stories of congregants to create an educational program for high school students that will go beyond the average lesson plan to highlight the social inequalities people faced in colonial times and relate it to the struggles teens face today. Teens will use primary source documents from the Old North Church record collection to establish a base understanding of social structures within the church. These documents, along with guiding questions, will facilitate a conversation between teens’ personal experiences and the colonial experience.
Any and all feedback will be welcome!
Who are we looking for?
– High school history teachers
– High school students
– Homeschoolers and other groups
– Families with teens
When: Friday, April 11, 2014 and Tuesday, April 15, 2014
Where: Old North Church, 193 Salem Street, Boston
Time: 3:30 – 5:00 pm
