    The virtual fellowship would take place over the summer and selected teachers would create three Smithsonian Learning Lab collections addressing Asian Pacific American or Latinx history, culture, or the arts, using Project Zero Global Thinking Routines as their main pedagogical framework. These collections will translate into classroom experiences, projects, or lessons published on the site for teachers across the country to use as models for adaptation in their own classrooms. Fellows will receive ongoing guidance by museum and education specialists. A stipend of $3,000 is available to teachers selected for this opportunity. Applications are due Friday, April 20.
