PhilaPlace presents an interpretive picture of the rich history, culture, and architecture of our neighborhoods, past and present. One of the key goals of PhilaPlace is to get teachers and students to use the PhilaPlace Web site to explore:

  • Place as a lens for the interpretation of history and culture
  • Mapping as a tool for historical and cultural inquiry
  • Local history and how it informs our understanding of larger historical questions
  • Historical and cultural change over time especially the city’s multiethnic landscape

PhilaPlace provides the following teacher resources and classroom activities aimed for grades 6 to12 aligned with Pennsylvania State Standards.
