The 1619 Project Education Portal
Posted by Pulitzer Center on November 23, 2021
The Pulitzer Center has launched 1619education.org, a new web portal where educators can find a library of curricular resources, snapshots of student work, and reflections from educators implementing 1619 materials across the country.
This launch coincides with the publication of two new 1619 Project texts: A New Origin Story, a book-length anthology that includes revised and expanded versions of the original 1619 Project essays alongside new essays and creative works; and Born on the Water, an illustrated children’s book in verse.
We’re especially excited to share new curricular resources created to support exploration of the project, designed by members of the 1619 Education Network and other teacher partners. These include complete units on the history of racism in science and healthcare (HS); examining the lasting influence of the musical traditions of enslaved people on American music today (ES); and reimagining narratives of enslavement through primary source documents and community gardening (adult learners, designed for scholars in a Florida state prison).
There is so much more to come. We look forward to sharing curricular materials, reflections, and opportunities to connect with other passionate educators as our resource library and community continue to grow.
