Teacher Leadership Program: “Teaching as Social Justice”

Thursday, January 15, 2015

4–6:30 pm

Education Division Studio 3, 1st Floor

NOTE: This event is currently full, and is no longer open for registration. How do art museums provide space for students to discuss politically-charged issues? How can we as educators use museums as spaces for dialogue and sharing resources? How can we develop teaching strategies that give students room to address difficult issues that matter to them? These are some of the sensitive questions we’ll examine this month as we consider ways educators and educational institutions, like schools and museums, can address current events and facilitate dialogue during civil unrest. We’ll engage in shared discussion, use the galleries as inspiration, and consider both philosophical and practical teaching ideas to help during trying times.



This monthly series of free workshops helps teachers engage with our collections and exhibitions. We welcome K–12 educators in all subject areas. For this session, we’d especially love to see those of you who work with students with special needs. Join us at 4 p.m. for coffee, snacks, and conversation; we’ll begin promptly at 4:30.



Please register in advance using this form or phone (718) 501-6236.  If you have further questions about the event, please email us.
