The Museum collaborates with K–12 school educators in Milton, Greater Boston, and New England to create interdisciplinary units of instruction based on the Museum and its collection. The Curriculum Writing Project explores topics in history, art history, architecture, science, math, social studies, language arts, and visual arts. Units of instruction can be designed to meet national and/or Massachusetts framework standards or other educational goals/objectives.
Some possible topics for exploration
Educators are invited to contact Robin Tagliaferri, executive director, at 617-696-1815 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about the project.
The FHM offers educational outreach presentations to K–12 students in the classroom. Presentations explore topics based on the Museum and its collection, and encompass art history, American history, architecture, science, math, social studies, language arts, and visual arts. Topics of interest can include exploring the American China trade, the China Trade Trail, and President Abraham Lincoln. Presentations will feature transportable works of art when possible and can prepare young people for a visit to the Museum.
