This program offers teachers an enriched understanding of how visual art can support reading, writing, and thinking. Workshops, discussions, and lectures by university faculty, museum curators, and educators will demonstrate how “visual text” can be used to enhance literacy instruction.
Institute sessions include hands-on experience with works of art, exploring ways to make the museum an extension of the classroom. Participants will be given the tools they need to lead dynamic museum visits and to incorporate visual arts into classroom instruction. Common core standards will be addressed. *Please note that only active teachers may attend.
Sessions run from 10 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Thursday. Lunch and parking are provided. This program is free of charge. Registration is now closed.
