The MCA’s Multiple Visit Program brings the Common Core to life by offering teachers and students grades 4-6 a chance to debate, discuss, and connect to works of art through return visits to the museum and provides professional development for teachers. Designed in alignment with Common Core English Language Arts Standards, this program uses contemporary art and ideas to sharpen students’ critical thinking skills so that they engage in collaborative dialogue and inquiry. In this session, we will model gallery activities (oral and written) and discuss opportunities for classroom integration and extension. Eligible attendees are highly encouraged to apply to be part of the 2017-18 cohort.
