¡NUEVOlution!

Curriculum for Educators

We are excited to share the ¡NUEVOlution! curriculum, a foundation from which educators can further engage students around the themes and topics within the exhibit. The curriculum is divided into three units, each of which contains lesson plans that meet NC Essential Standards and Common Core objectives. To assist educators in bridging the gap between the classroom and the exhibit, each lesson plan incorporates videos from ¡NUEVOlution! that can be accessed online. Moreover, we encourage educators to be creative and adapt the lesson plans to meet the needs of their students.

It is our hope that the ¡NUEVOlution! curriculum enable educators to open the door for dialogue, build bridges between students of different backgrounds, introduce multiculturalism, and help students connect their personal stories to this new chapter in Southern history.

Through our research, we've complied a list of surprising facts and figuers about the Latino New South. Discover rates of growth, the economic impact and insights on terminology.
Levine Museum worked with Atlanta History Center and the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute in the multi-year Latino New South Project to study, document and understand the dramatic and rapid demographic shift occurring across the South, and to develop strong partnerships with Latino communities. Through our work, which began in 2012 and included a series of listening sessions with Latinos and non-Latinos in each city, 7 insights emerged.
El Museo Levine del Nuevo Sur es un museo de historia interactivo. Explora el significado del Nuevo Sur y comparte las historias de su gente - hombres, mujeres y niños; afroamericanos, blancos, ricos y pobres, residentes antiguos y nuevos- quienes han reinventado y moldeado la región desde finales de la Guerra Civil y quienes continúan haciendo historia.
