Digital Units & Lesson Plans

Digital Suitcases


Minnesota Humanities Center

These eight Digital Suitcases were developed by educators during the summer of 2013 through a partnership with Saint Paul Public Schools’ Center for Equity and Culture and the Minnesota Humanities Center. Each Digital Suitcase includes: 

Capitol Art

Capitol Art

Grade Levels: 6-12th

Much of our Minnesota State Capitol Art reinforces the dominant narrative of western expansion, and ignores other perspectives and historical facts. This unit offers resources for students to critically examine this art and re-imagine what images could be in our capitol that would more fully represent Minnesota.

Integrated Units

Grade Levels: K-5th

In the summer of 2020, the Office of Equity and Social Studies Department worked with teachers to create 30 three-day units that integrate social studies and literacy. All units:

  • are written specifically for K-5 distance learning
  • include activities on SeeSaw, Schoology and Google docs
  • are built around a children’s book with diverse representation - all books available as multi-user e-books
  • integrate standards from social studies, literacy and other content areas
  • Identify culturally responsive instructional strategies and Teaching Tolerance social justice standards
  • include Courageous Conversations Classrooms, tools teachers can use to develop themselves and their classrooms to engage in meaningful conversations with students
