Art Integrated: Cross-Curricular Teaching
With new curriculum changes in Alberta, and art becoming a segment of each lesson plan, Glenbow would like to share our skills of inquiry and object based learning. Through art and artifact handling, group discussion and hands-on-activities, we hope to educate any teacher of any subject how to use objects and art to create cross-curricular connections in your daily lesson plans.
See, Think, Wonder: Looking Deeply at Art
Looking at art inspires questions, creates new points of view and makes connections between new and old knowledge. Using Glenbow's collection of historical and contemporary art, participating educators will explore ways to encourage a deeper understanding of art through various thinking routines. At the end of this workshop, educators will have several myriad methods to engage students in an in-depth art inquiry.
Historical Thinking and Multiple Perspectives
Deliberately explore the Mavericks exhibit at Glenbow Museum and engage in critical thinking challenges that can be transferable to the classroom learning environment. Explore the use of story as a way to understand multiple perspectives and assume the role of Curator, focusing on establishing criteria and historical context and thinking skills.
Meeting the Blackfoot
Using the traditional teaching methods of story-telling, role-playing and games, voyage into the Niitsitapiisinni Gallery to learn about the rich and powerful history of the Blackfoot people. This workshop is delivered by a member of the Blackfoot community who will also talk about the Blackfoot today and assist us in understanding the way they perceive and function within an urban culture.
