The educational supplement to our most popular school presentation, Jazz History is Our History, is above. This guide includes additional lessons, activities, and books recommendations, designed to seamlessly expand the theatrical Jazzy Ash experience back to the classroom and beyond. 

This teacher guide was developed by world-class teaching artists at Lincoln Center Education, specifically for Jazzy Ash's recent Meet The Artist presentation at Lincoln Center. The guide is "comprised of contextual information about the artists, suggested pre- and post-performance classroom activities, and discussion questions", and includes information about Common Core connections.
