Local History and Museums Workshop: Building Relationships to Build School Audiences
The Wisconsin Historical Society and the Wisconsin Federation of Museums are proud co-sponsors of this workshop, one in a series of spring workshops for local history organizations and museums.
"No Child Left Behind" federal legislation has had a tremendous impact on schools but also on museums. Teachers and administrators are eliminating field trips because they feel the need to spend the time in their classrooms to fulfill state standards and prepare students for statewide testing. But museums, historical societies, zoos and other cultural institutions can help! Learn what you can do to develop school programming that addresses state standards and forges relationships with teachers and administrators. Discover the benefits from partnering with other local organizations on joint programming and promotion. This workshop includes practical information on developing inquiry-based programming and different models of delivering standards-based field experiences for young learners.Instructors:
Nancy Mathews, senior curator of education at the Kenosha Public Museum, and Bobbie Malone, head of the Society's Office of School Services.
