For Teachers

Design Your Neighborhood is a curriculum that includes activities for classrooms of grades 5-12.  The activities engage youth with the world around them through a lens of the core question: How does the shape that we give to our city, in turn, shape us?

The content is based on the Nashville Civic Design Center's books The Plan of Nashville: Avenues to a Great City, and Shaping the Healthy Community: The Nashville Plan. The activities best align with the standards and goals of World and Human Geography, Government and Civics, Visual Arts, and Freshman Seminar courses. 

The videos below show a teacher testimonial, and student led showcase that were a result of the curriculum being taught in a Freshman Seminar class at LEAD Academy High School.
