Building a Better World

Read about some of the ways Skirball educators partner with families, students, teachers, and community organizations to promote a more just society.

  • The Art of Dialogue: A Scriptwriting Residency with St. Mary’s Academy

    The stories we tell—around a dinner table, in the grocery checkout line, or even what we say to ourselves—shape our lives and the world we live in. Whose stories get told? Who gets to hear those stories? These are some of the questions we asked ourselves as we built the curriculum for a six-week residency with high schoolers at St. Mary's Academy in Inglewood.

  • Wise Council

    Shifting to distance education was no small feat. Yet this was the enormous challenge facing America’s teachers when stay-at-home orders went into effect in early 2020. Learn how LA teachers and Skirball educators sought learning from one another and drew strength in community.

  • Creating "The Art of Imagination" Digital Content

    Learn how the Skirball brought the meaning and messages of Noah's Ark into classrooms online by collaborating with teachers to create a suite of streaming videos, downloadable lesson plans, remote teacher programs, and virtual field trips throughout the pandemic and beyond.

  • Profiles in Courage

    About 100 years ago, as war waged on around them, Reva Nebrat and her family fled northern Ukraine and took passage to the United States. In a suitcase, they packed a few photos, Reva’s favorite doll, and Shabbat candlesticks, among other meaningful belongings.
