Each year, the festival researches the culture, history and people of the honored city to develop a comprehensive teacher’s curriculum guide for use by elementary, middle and high school teachers. In conjunction with the local school systems, Memphis in May distributes this guide to the teachers in over 350 city, county and private schools. In addition, the guide is sent to home schools, distributed throughout the area library system and untold quantities are downloaded directly from the Memphis in May website.
The 2019 Memphis in May Curriculum Guide is divided into grade divisions and offers teachers stand-alone activities to incorporate into their curriculum, including educational standards from English, Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Fine Arts, Health/Wellness and others. With this extraordinary tool, teachers can immerse their students in the honored city’s culture.
*Section-by-section download now available. Now you can download just the section you need for your classroom.
If you would like a personal copy of the Memphis Curriculum guide, please send an email to education [at] memphisinmay [dot] org and include your name and school address.
The 2019 Curriculum Guide will be available in late fall.
This year's curriculum guide is sponsored by the Shelby County Mayor's Charitable Foundation.
