Professional Development for Teachers

Free Open House for Educators and Curator-led Tour of FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures

Thursday, October 26th, 2017 @ 4:30pm - 6:00pm

As a way to actively engage visitors in a conversation about immigration issues, FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures will present the story of the passengers of the Golden Venture, a ship carrying 286 undocumented Chinese immigrants that ran aground in New York City in 1993. Selected from MOCA’s collection, over forty sculptures collectively created by the immigrants while detained for years at York County Prison will be on display. Join curators Herb Tam and Andrew Rebatta for a tour of the exhibition, and chat with MOCA education staff about school programs at the Museum and in your classroom.

Workshops for Educators & Practioners!

MOCA provides in-depth professional development opportunities and K‒12 teaching resources which use the museum’s unique exhibitions and collections in a source-based and arts-integrated approach to teaching and learning. Professional development sessions feature special exhibitions and the museum's permanent collection, meet National Common Core Standards of Learning, and enhance teachers' ability to use the Chinese American experience to teach students about broader issues of immigration, community, and citizenship.

 

MOCA also offers customized trainings, workshops, and tours tailored to your school or department's curriculum and interests. During these workshops, MOCA education staff discusses approaches to inquiry and document-based teaching strategies, and assists teachers in strengthening content knowledge, using the museum's collections to enrich and enliven the teaching of history in the classroom.

 

Our School and Educator Programs supports Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) standards and state curriculum and instruction in the ELA, Arts, Social Studies, and History.
