What is the program like? Past participants have said:
“I found art to be a great tool for approaching topics of diversity, justice, and perspective. It’s approachable and allows for student interpretation and conclusion drawing, which helps me feel more like a guide on the journey and allows them to have some agency over their own growth and learning. This program gave me confidence and tools.”
“I think I am already doing a lot of social justice work in my classroom, but having resources at my fingertips made a huge difference. It was also really helpful to have faculty in world cultures at our meetings to help us think through our ideas and helping to make sure we weren’t talking about culture in simple ways.”
“I enjoyed learning about various artists and the resources available from the Broad Museum. I immediately integrated many of the resources into my teaching thus benefiting my students and myself.”
“I am not a confident artist but am a confident global issues teacher. Going out of my comfort zone to bring more art and art experiences into my classroom allowed me to connect with so many talented 6th grade artists in my team. My students learned more because art was present in our classroom and my students were able to show me what they knew and learned through one more avenue.”
