Third Consecutive Year-Over-Year Growth
2020 Curriculum Guide will be available in September!
Each year, the festival researches the culture, history, and people of the honored country to develop a comprehensive 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 2020 Memphis in May Curriculum Guide includes Tennessee Academic Standards and an expanded layout to include reproducibles. The 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 are able to immerse their students in the honored country’s culture.
