The history of your community.
No matter the subject area or the grade level, a school museum project can improve learning and teaching. Unlike science fairs or art shows, which highlight the work of individuals, school museums are collaborative, multifaceted projects that build understanding. As students engage in meaningful work and deepen their knowledge of a specific topic, teachers gain insight into best instructional practices.
Through photographs and classroom examples, former curriculum director, teacher, and museum educator Linda DâAcquisto shows how school museums inspire studentsâ curiosity and creativity; encourage responsibility and teamwork; and strengthen writing, communication, research, and problem-solving skills. You will learn the process for developing your own exhibition, including strategies for
*incorporating academic content standards
*assessing learning and understanding
*guiding research, writing, and design
*promoting partnerships among students, colleagues, parents, and the community
*using the completed museum as a teaching tool
With its step-by-step approach and practical resources, Learning on Display will help you transform your curriculum into motivating museum projects that make class work rigorous, memorable, and fun.
Linda DâAcquisto assists teachers and schools in planning student-designed museum exhibitions through her consulting firm, Kid Curators.
