Bringing History to Life!

The goal of BHS is to enhance the New York State Common Core Curriculum Standards in Social Studies through interactive programs for all school age students. Many of the programs utilize archival material from our teaching collection. By using primary and secondary sources, students are encouraged to become active historians. They are given the opportunity to examine authentic documents, photographs, maps, and artifacts. They are motivated to hypothesize, interpret, and use their deductive reasoning skills. Programs are tailored to meet the age and interest level, as well as the special needs of visiting students.
