DIA Summer Workshop Series: Being Diplomatic: How Art Helps to Spread Ideas (High School)

Detroit Institute of Art Summer Workshop Series for K-12 Educators

A museum-classroom integration workshop series co-sponsored by Pitt NCTA 
During these grade-level targeted workshops, educators will discover new ways of incorporating specific works from the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) into their curriculum as they learn more about the narratives told by the objects and images specific to the Asian galleries. They will receive access to a variety of lesson materials including readings, graphic organizers, and activities which will enhance student experiences both in their own classrooms and during their gallery and virtual visits to the DIA. Teachers will learn how to integrate images into a variety of critical-thinking activities as a means of facilitating more productive class investigations while learning how to use specific museum objects to engage students in close looking and descriptive writing activities. Additionally, teachers will learn how to access and use DIA materials for remote learning opportunities. NCTA alumna Angie Stokes will be sharing the new, cross-curricular Asian galleries curriculum with teachers and demonstrating how to use the lessons, graphic organizers, and resource materials in both regular and virtual classroom settings.
