Critical Thinking
Regardless of which field trip experience you choose, all of our programs are designed to emphasize the critical thinking skills students use in museums, the classroom, and as lifelong learners. The following big goals inform the teaching and facilitation methods used on all Gallery + Classroom Programs:
Learners will individually and collaboratively use museum spaces, objects, and content to:

  1. Compare and contrast the past and present.
  2. Make connections between the people, places, and stories of history and their personal experience.
  3. Comprehend and evaluate multiple perspectives and past choices.
  4. Express and support their own perspectives on history.

Here are some Pre-Visit Activities and other resources.

Program Modifications
We understand that there are many factors that may cause your bus to be late. However, due to other group reservations and the schedules of our Museum Educators, you will not be able to extend the length of your visit past your reservation time. If you arrive late, we will do our best to still deliver the program you reserved; however modifications may be necessary depending on your arrival time. For groups that are excessively late, significant changes to your program will be necessary.
