    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Described by the creators as “Colored Conventions in a Box,” the curriculum materials of the Colored Conventions Project aims to serve as a “curricular package that supports instructors as they engage in teaching that transforms the minutes of the convention they’ve chosen to teach into a rich and engaging series of cultural biographies and visual artifacts.” The curriculum includes memos of understanding for students and teachers, lesson plans, sample exercises and syllabi, and strategies for grading work using the convention material. Along with classroom exercises and pedagogy, the curriculum materials model best practices for instructors interested in using the archival material on the site and teaching diverse subjects or sensitive topics. Instructors can use the curriculum as is alongside the Colored Conventions Project or adapt elements (like the memo of understanding) to guide students developing their own projects.
