Baltimore Grassroots Curriculum


Curriculum Matters

Baltimore Grassroots Curriculum acknowledges that school transformation cannot happen without a plan for changing curriculum and classroom culture in ways that give agency to students. The purpose of this curriculum is to provide resources to teachers who strive to make learning relevant to communities and to the lives of young people. The grassroots curriculum is designed to be adapted by teachers to fit different subject areas. It includes rich source materials of maps and articles as well as lesson plan ideas for a variety of subject areas and other resources for teachers.  We welcome any teachers who want to pilot pieces of curriculum or develop your own pieces that will be shared with others to join us.
