Working with Salem Schools. Salem Museum Curator Mary-Ellen Smiley will be working with Salem’s schools to develop a powerful partnership to assist in history education in Salem.
“The newly established Salem Museum is dedicated to telling the story of the Salem Community and its people. Our exhibits reflect the many themes and events that have influenced the development of this historically significant seaport town. It is our purpose to share the Salem Museum’s resources with those educators who are required by virtue of Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks to teach local history units to their students. In order to facilitate this, we are developing a series of museum education programs focusing upon key themes of local history. These include early settlement, maritime history, and the Salem witch trials. We invite teachers to contact our Curator of Education directly in order to plan and prepare both in-class and in-museum visits. We look forward to discussing your curriculum needs in person.” — Mary-Ellen L Smiley, Curator of Education
