Virtual Summer Teacher Institute: How Do We Look?

  • June 24, 2021, 9:30 am–12:30 pm

Free admission

This four-day virtual institute offers K–12 educators an understanding of how visual art can support classroom reading, writing, and critical-thinking skills.

About this program

Group discussions and workshops, led by university faculty and museum and school educators, will focus on objects from the Center’s collections to demonstrate how to explore history and contemporary social issues. Daily sessions will provide practice in using the museum as an extension of the classroom. Common core standards will be addressed. Participants are expected to attend all four days. This program is open to actively practicing teachers. 

This year’s Summer Teacher Institute is generously supported by the William Randolph Hearst Endowment.

The application period has closed. Notices of acceptance will be sent on Monday, June 14.
