Negro Leagues Baseball Museum Partnership

Among the K-State College of Education's accomplishments has been a partnership forged with the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, MO. Since 1998, the partnership has produced a number of initiatives and products to assist students and teachers to better understand the social studies themes found in Negro Leagues history.

The following websites and documents have been developed as part of this collaboration:

Negro Leagues Baseball eMuseum

This website was created in 2006 when K-State Negro League Scholars developed curriculum materials and an eMuseum featuring Negro Leagues history as a platform for teaching American history. Secondary educators, with emphasis on the needs of high school teachers, were the target audience for lesson plans aligned with regional and national teaching standards as well as national technology standards.

Teacher's Field Trip Guide to the NLBM

This guide focuses on information and questions to reflect upon during a field trip to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. It was created in cooperation with the Lee's Summit, Missouri School District.

A Look at Life in the Negro Leagues

This website was created in 2000 by K-State College of Education faculty members. It was funded by a grant from the Kansas State Department of Education awarded under the Technology Literacy Challenge Fund.
