Local Teacher Shares ‘Journey Home’ Game

As part of a Spring 2018 Binghamton University Elementary Education Curriculum Development course, Dr. Jenny Gordon assigned graduate students to craft a board game for use in a classroom. Then-student Alisha Jermayne Merrill created ‘Journey Home’, an immersive Social Studies game for grades 3-5 that focuses on Native American cultures. Ms. Merrill drew from her own experiences and culture to develop this game. She is now teaching with the Johnson City School District in Johnson City, NY. Check out our interview with Ms. Merrill here.

Bring ‘Hamilton’ Into Your Classroom

GREAT PERFORMANCES: “Hamilton’s America” provides a behind-the-scenes look at Lin-Manuel
Miranda’s smash hit Broadway musical Hamilton. “Hamilton’s America” blends history, footage of Miranda’s writing process, and scenes from the musical itself to create a vibrant and engaging film about the making of the musical and the preservation of Alexander Hamilton’s legacy. PBS LearningMedia now features this collection for the classroom, which includes clips, activities, discussion questions, handouts, and teaching tips connected to the film.
