John F. Kennedy: Citizen of the World

Day and Time: TBD

How can JFK’s life and presidency provide a lens for global studies in grades 6-8? Participants will sample primary sources, exhibits and activities—including analysis of paintings done by a Peace Corps volunteer—featured in a museum program that challenges students to consider what it means to be a citizen of the world. They will also be introduced to Kennedy Library digital resources for teaching about other countries and cultures.

Target Audience: Middle School
