Teacher Preview Tour: Creativity in the Common Core

During this teacher preview tour, you will explore the galleries with a museum educator, receive materials to help plan tours, and have the opportunity to ask questions regarding student visits. This is a preview of the medieval tour. On the Creativity and the Common Core tour, students explore three to five works of art, giving them the opportunity to make personal connections while acknowledging the diverse perspectives of their classmates. Students participate in independent and collaborative activities that integrate reading, writing, speaking, and listening. These open-ended, student-centered activities foster skills addressed in the Common Core English Language Arts Standards, including communication, critical thinking, and evidential reasoning.
