We work towards creating a sustainable and mutually beneficial partnership where Museum educators and West Side Collaborative (WSC) staff contribute their expertise to the exchange of learning.
During this two-hour workshop in the exhibition Modern Life: Edward Hopper and His Time, teachers explored different ways to integrate works of art into their English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum for sixth to eighth grade students. Teachers learned how to encourage close looking and conversation about a work of art by asking open-ended questions. They also considered how works of art could serve as inspiration for short stories and poetry.
