Online Learning

Online learning options at the CMCH allow you and your students to connect with us online at your convenience or through a live Distance Learning program. All of our engaging online program offerings are aligned with the goals and objectives of the Connecticut Elementary and Secondary Social Studies Frameworks and Common Core State Standards.

Distance Learning

These hour-long, live, interactive programs are great for your students whether they’re at home or in your classroom. Though Zoom is our preferred platform, we are happy to accommodate your technology needs and requirements. Program length can be shortened for class length, as needed. For deeper engagement, create a multi-visit experience by pairing a distance learning program with an on-site or outreach program!
