Learning History

A creative collaboration with Capitol Hill Montessori led to the involvement of young students in the Statuevision performance, and the creation of situated learning platforms for educators and students to use in teaching the history of icons represented in DC’s monuments, through Statuevision’s archived material.

The format for the teaching materials went through several iterations, with the help of the faculty at Capital Hill Montessori, in an effort to find the most effective method for engaging the students. In the end, each student received a pack of Statuevision trading cards: fifty 2 x 3 inch colorful cards with an image of the statue on the front, and “stats” about the statue on the back, available online below. Facebook Pages were also created for older students to explore more in-depth material about each historical figure.
