MCA Chicago is now accepting applications for our Multiple Visit program!
The MCA brings the Common Core to life by offering students a chance to debate, discuss, and connect to works of art through multiple visits to the museum. Designed in alignment with the English Language Arts Standards, our program uses contemporary art to sharpen your students’ critical and creative thinking skills and abilities to engage in collaborative dialogue and inquiry.
Key components: • Professional development sessions for teachers at the MCA (December 6th, 9th, and 11th, 2014). Participating teachers will earn CPDUs. • Three artist-led field trips for students to the MCA (January–May 2015). Free admission and bus transportation provided. Tours last 90 minutes and are offered at 11 am, Tuesday–Friday. • Ongoing assessment and a reflection workshop for teachers (Spring 2015). We invite Chicago Public School Teachers who teach in 5th and 6th grade general education and Language Arts classrooms to apply. Ten teachers will be selected by application to join this program.
To apply, please download and complete the application and the Letter of Support to share with your principal, both are available via http://www2.mcachicago.org/event/multiple-visit-program/
Applications are due by Sunday, November 9.
