Each exhibition season we offer special evenings just for teachers. This is your chance to see our new exhibitions, take a tour, or try a hands-on workshop to see how a visit to the AGH will fit within your classroom studies. This Fall and Winter, we are offering two specialized programs designed to meet the needs of either the elementary or secondary classrooms.
Wednesday, November 1
4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Through the lens of two important exhibitions, Shelley Niro: 1779 and Abedar Kamgari: The Journey West, the concept of displacement will be explored. We will share more information about the exhibitions and the ways they will connect with your classroom learning. We will also discuss our upcoming Student Symposium which takes place on November 14. School program overview including classroom links and creative activities demo begins at 4:15 pm. Gallery tours and independent browsing at 5:00 pm.
This event is open to elementary and secondary school teachers, and will demonstrate curriculum connections for History, Social Studies, English and Visual Art. We will make specific connections for the Grades 10 and 11 History students. Teacher’s Night is FREE for all teachers, and includes AGH Admission. Have a colleague who hasn’t been to the Gallery? This is a great way to introduce them!
Spaces are limited. Please RSVP to email@example.com, and let us know what grade and subject you teach.
An experience at the AGH is most meaningful when it is embedded into classroom studies as part of a teaching unit or ongoing discourse. To support classroom visits to the AGH, our Pre-Visit and Follow-Up packages offer valuable information to help teachers prepare students for their AGH experience, curriculum connections and selected images as well as suggested activities to do in the classroom after your visit.
Please check back later this summer for 2017 Fall Materials.
