In this three-part series, a Museum educator works with the classroom teacher to design a customized program and will visit the school before and after the Museum visit.
Fee: FREE for New York City public schools in kindergarten through twelfth grade. All other schools may participate at a cost of $500 per group.
Group Size: 25 students or less, with a limit of 2 classes per school. Detailed information on group sizes, dates and times for a Museum visit are on the online Classroom Collaborative application form.
Note: This program is only for schools within the five boroughs of New York City.
In an effort to more closely align School Programs at the Whitney with classroom curricula, we are asking teachers to apply to participate in Classroom Collaboratives. We are looking for teachers who are interested in using the Whitney’s collections and exhibitions to enhance, enrich, and extend classroom learning.
Apply for Classroom Collaboratives for spring 2013!
All programs address the New York State Learning Standards and focus on school curriculum areas including art, English language arts, social studies, and technology. Programs address the New York City Blueprint for Visual Arts Strands I–IV.
All programs at the Whitney also support classroom learning in the ways encouraged by the Common Core State Standards. Our artist-centered, inquiry-based tours and multi-part programs develop skills in evidential reasoning, critical thinking, and public speaking.
