Expanding Literacies, Extending Classrooms

Summer Teacher Institute at the Yale Center for British Art
June 26–29, 2017

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.

• Introductory course for new attendees.
• Progressive course for returning teachers on developing an artists’/writers’ workshop in your classroom.

Sessions run from 10 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Thursday. Lunch and parking is provided. This program is free of charge. Submissions are now closed. For further information, please contact Education ( | +1 203 432 2858).

Bonus! If you attend the institute with one or more colleagues from the same school, we will offer you a Teacher Resource Packet for your classroom.
