Story+ | "Left of Black" School Curriculum

For the summer 2018 edition of Story +, Left of Black enlisted the aid of graduate mentors and undergraduate students to create an online curriculum for high school students. As it approaches its 10th year, the Left of Black weekly webcast continues to grow and older episodes see less circulation. The team mined and re-engineered these conversations into lesson plans to make Black Studies more public facing and accessible to students.

Story+ is a 6-week summer research experience for Duke undergraduates interested in exploring humanities research approaches (archival research, oral histories, narrative analysis, visual analysis, and more). The program combines research with an emphasis on storytelling for different public audiences. In Story+, students are organized into small project teams and have the opportunity to participate in a flexible mini “curriculum” on research methods and storytelling strategies. Team projects may be led by Duke faculty, Duke librarians, or non-profit organizations, and will be supervised on a day-to-day basis by graduate student mentors.
