ABOUT OUR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS
The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU invites you to participate in a wide range of educational programs that make history come to life. The photographs, stories, artifacts, historical documents and art in our Museum while reflective of the Jewish experience in Florida, embrace the shared immigrant experience in our society. Participants in our Museum experience soon recognize themselves in our stories and remark: "We are more alike than different."
Our educational programs are designed to enhance your teaching and learning experience while educating students in the traditions and experiences that form the foundations of Jewish life. Our goal is to provide a meaningful experience that links the Florida Jewish experience to our shared multicultural, national and global history.
Museum education programs are rooted in the benchmarks and desired outcomes of the Florida Sunshine State standards and the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.
Educational programs at the Jewish Museum of Florida are offered in many formats:
- Guided tours: of our core exhibit MOSAIC: Jewish Life in Florida and temporary exhibits that change throughout the year.
- Multi-media experiences: our exhibits are enriched with the use of primary source documents and artifacts (letters, clothing, ads, artifacts), films and oral histories to reach diverse learners.
- Professional Development: hands-on workshops designed especially for teachers K – 12.
- Student Workshops: multi-disciplinary hands-on workshops using exhibit themes to make history come to life.
