It's a metamorphosis! Students in this six-part program will become engaged individuals, well-versed in the act of close looking. As informed, active, and inquisitive thinkers, program participants evolve into what we call “allies,” those who through increased self-awareness are able to understand bias and practice tolerance in our society at large. As we increase the number of allies in our community, we increase our ability to make a difference in today's world.
In this program tour, you will learn about our two lesson formats: lessons centered on museum artifacts and group-based, interactive lessons conducted by the Anti-Defamation League’s A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute facilitators. Each lesson format is taught both at the museum and in the school classroom.
Our students internalize these lessons through various methods of engagement: journal writing, picture making, poetry writing, and more. Please move forward with the tour to learn more about our lessons and student activities!
