 Massie Awarded CMA Award

2019 CMA
Award of Excellence

Massie Heritage Center has been awarded the Coastal Museums Association’s Award of Excellence in Education and Interpretation for our program, “Pinching Pottery and Weaving Walls: American Indian STEAM”.
This program was created to help 3rd grade teachers meet recent changes in the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) related to American Indian settlement across North America

 Savannah-Chatham County Public School teachers expressed a desire for a more local and place-based approach. The program is an interactive STEAM program that can be performed at Massie Heritage Center, or in a classroom setting.

 Recently, SCCPSS schools have popularized “STEAM Nights” as an exciting community event celebrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Massie’s American Indian programs quickly became a favorite during “STEAM Nights” 

One of the most crucial aspects of the 3rd grade GSE is that students understand how the geography, environment and resources affected the American Indians and how/where they settled. This complex relationship between Coastal Georgia's American Indians and our unique geography is something that we wanted to interpret in depth using hands-on STEAM activities. Using the exact same pottery or weaving technique that the American Indians used provides students and visitors with a fresh look on historic material. 

 In addition to the estimated 2,000 students from the SCCPSS that attended this program as a field trip, we also brought this program to 5 STEAM nights- reaching Savannah families throughout the low-country.

EVENING AT MASSIE HISTORY and ARCHITECTURE SERIES:  

 

A CONVERSATION ABOUT  LEGENDARY WILLIAM JAY with JOHN DUNCAN and HIS CO-AUTHOR, SANDRA UNDERWOOD

Proudly Sponsored by the Friends of Massie

in cooperation with the Savannah

Downtown Neighborhood Association

 

    DATE: Tuesday, September 24, 2019, 6:30 PM.
                
Talk begins at 7 PM

   WHAT: Massie Heritage Center welcomes historian and collector. John Duncan for an evening of history exploring the accomplishments of a now almost unknown architect.  Historians are persistent people. Take John Duncan, our legendary history scholar, ardent collector, and resident wit. He has spent almost 50 years pursuing this young architect who changed the architectural face of Savannah in five remarkable years from 1817 to 1822.  There were more questions than answers about William Jay, and Duncan was determined to research and document Jay’s contribution to his now landmark buildings. Aided by Sandra Underwood, a retired professor of art history who collaborated for ten years on the  book and his wife Virginia, who is his partner in V&J Duncan, an emporium of antique maps, prints and maps on Monterey Square, who helped research Jay. 
Duncan traces Jay’s life through vibrant and volatile  world of the English Regency which
reshaped Savannah’s landscape, society and architecture.  With the dawn of the nineteenth century, the city of Savannah found itself on the cusp of great change as it developed from a provincial colonial capital to a thriving and nationally important port city.

             authors of “The Showy Town of Savannah” -
 
           The Story of Architect William Jay
