Teacher Institute

Register for the 2018 Summer Teacher Institute. Registration extended to July 2. Space is limited.

Our Teacher Institute is an intensive six-day academic course for K–12 teachers of all subject areas. Offered for P-credits through the New York City Department of Education, the Institute provides opportunities to create an equitable classroom filled with critically engaged students through object-based lessons focusing on facilitation and questioning techniques.

The 2018 Summer Teacher Institute presents Unpacking Power through Visual Narratives. You will learn to integrate best practices for museum and art education, as well as the Brooklyn Museum’s resources, into your K–12 social studies curricula. Use modeling, research, reflection, and application to develop unit plans and design classroom experiences that build students’ skills in analyzing, interpreting, and responding to sociopolitical issues through works of art. Combining art-making, literacy in the visual arts, and interaction with Museum professionals, this course illuminates each strand of NYC’s Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in Visual Arts.

Summer 2018 schedule and fee:
July 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 16
9 am–4 pm
$250 for the entire course (includes breakfast and lunch)

K–12 teachers receive 3 P-credits by also registering through ASPDP (additional fees apply).
