As part of Beauvoir's DEIB curriculum, our third graders are exploring DC's history and culture through the study of the city’s vibrant neighborhoods. Using technology and resources gathered by their teachers, students are researching what it takes to plan a community, what makes those communities special, and how changes can be made to ensure that people are thriving in those communities. From Dupont to Anacostia, from the Wharf to Woodley Park, our students are covering all corners of the city!
