Teaching the Humanities through Art (SAAM)

April 1, 2018
July 9, 2018 to July 13, 2018
Be inspired this summer! Attend one of the Smithsonian American Art Museum's week-long institutes in Washington, D.C. Join educators from across the country for an exciting exploration of the connections among American art, social studies, history, and English/language arts. Museum professionals lead participants in interactive content sessions, gallery talks, and hands-on activities that use American art to make interdisciplinary connections and foster critical thinking skills. Participants will become confident in their ability to integrate art into their curriculum, share lesson ideas, and leave with a tool kit of resources they can put to use in the classroom.
Priority will be given to social studies and English teachers for grades 6-12. Teachers may apply as individuals or as part of a team. Graduate credit, scholarships, and low-cost housing accommodations are available.
