Virtual tours can be tailored to meet specific curriculum goals and classroom needs. All virtual tours are conducted via Zoom but can be adapted for other platforms upon request.

Connections to Core Learning Standards: Students will be asked to observe and analyze images as primary sources, citing specific evidence to articulate reasoning behind their ideas. Questions will be employed to encourage students to analyze how history and artistic ideas interact. Each lesson will incorporate activities designed to challenge students to develop divergent solutions and outcomes.
