Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Institute for Urban and Minority Education’s scaling of African Diaspora content  
Hosted by Teachers College, the Institute for Urban and Minority Education, in partnership with the African Diaspora Consortium, developed and piloted the first ever African Diaspora content. African Diaspora content is a course with curriculum and professional development that is a combination of foundational elements of research and best practices that have demonstrated promise for enhancing academic outcomes for all students, regardless of background. African Diaspora content is multidisciplinary and not solely history focused, and it is inclusive of the role of arts to communicate, connect, and uplift community. The content allows teachers to delve into topics that are culturally relevant, particularly for African-American and Afro-Latino students, and connect these themes to Advanced Placement frameworks. This grant will support the scaling of these efforts and create professional development opportunities for teachers across the country.
