Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (Kansas City, MO 64111-1818)
Anne Manning (Project Director: September 2016 to present)

Museum/School Programming in the Humanities

Using the extraordinary American collection as a focal point, the Nelson-Atkins proposes a series of four conversations that bring together Kansas City educators and curriculum specialists, museum curators and educators, librarians, civic leaders, and community foundations to explore deep and sustained collaborations that enhance student learning in the humanities. We have elected to concentrate on the American art order to focus our efforts and create a replicable model for future endeavors in other areas. The Nelson-Atkins has strong holdings in American painting, sculpture, photography, prints, and decorative arts from the 18th century to the present.

Planning conversations will include up to 12 social studies/history and art teachers at the elementary, middle, and high school level, as well as two instruction specialists. Including the end users in the design of humanities program is essential to ensuring that it is relevant to the field. By focusing on the specific needs and content knowledge of K-12 educators, the group will be able to consider sequential and progressive learning experiences.
