About this Grantee

Ms. Carlson, Ms. Kevorkian, and Ms. Namnoun-Allen design a multidisciplinary curriculum that improves students’ social studies, art, and literacy skills. Collaborating with a local museum, students research the history of one of Hartford’s landmarks, the Bushnell Park Carousel. With this knowledge, students create artwork, books, and music about the carousel. At the conclusion of the project, students visit Bushnell Park and produce and stage a musical production about the carousel landmark.
