The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza interprets the life, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. Now, through interactive, inquiry-based distance learning programs, you and your students can experience history through careful examination of the photographs, films and artifacts in the Museum's collection of 55,000 items. These programs also connect students with "living history" speakers: eyewitnesses, law enforcement officials, journalists, physicians and others with direct memories of the Kennedy assassination. A selection of engaging programs provide opportunities for students to meet the Museum's curatorial, collections and education staff, prompting thoughtful discussions on U.S. history, world history, the Civil Rights Movement, oral history and the role of the historian! All programs meet state and national history standards.

"I just wanted to write to say thank you so much for the fantastic sessions this morning. The girls really enjoyed them and so did the staff. We were all impressed by the professional way that you switched between the photos and other evidence and then back to you. This allowed the students to discuss the evidence and see it even though they were not at the museum. The way you showed us 'through the window' using the live feed from the webcam was brilliant and very effectively placed you geographically. We also appreciated the expertise that you shared with us, while keeping the interactive feel by constantly asking our girls questions and allowing them to direct the discussion. It was really a fantastic experience for them!
