Graduated Student Smiling to the Camera

BMore Me is a Baltimore City Public Schools program hosted by the Office of Equity that is grounded in the belief that students deserve to learn about and share their own stories and histories and that doing so will support them in becoming leaders and thinkers in their schools and communities. BMore Me ultimately hopes to foster the historian, storyteller, advocate, and leader of each young person in Baltimore City.

The BMore Me Units

Each teacher-written unit, which lasts about three weeks, asks students to explore a compelling question connected to social studies content. It allows students to learn from a variety of relevant, engaging, and diverse sources.

  • 3rd grade: Is it possible for everyone to live the same “American Dream”?

  • 4th grade: How does the legacy of Indigenous culture reflect our society in Maryland?

  • 5th grade: Did the Civil War unite us?

  • 6th grade: Who deserves a monument?

  • 7th grade: What makes us Baltimore?

  • 8th grade: What is Baltimore's narrative?

  • US History: How did we get here and where are we going?

  • Government: How can we build a better Baltimore?

  • World History: Was the Industrial Revolution good for Baltimore?

Beyond the Classroom

“The BMore Me lessons... really allowed (students) the opportunity to explore their own identities and it was very meaningful for them. ”
