P184-10882.1M21 - The Morgan Book Project Summer Institute for Teachers: Illuminating Your Curriculum Through Interdisciplinary Collaboration

Course Details
Course Description: During the Morgan Book Project-Summer Institute for Teachers, participants will examine exceptional primary sources from the Morgan's renowned collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts, explore strategies for teaching book art techniques in the classroom using professional grade and historical art materials, and develop a collaborative, cross-disciplinary, and multimodal unit of study to be implemented in their classroom the upcoming school year. The Summer Institute for Teachers interweaves social studies, language arts, and visual arts. Over the course of this four day intensive professional learning opportunity, pairs of visual arts and classroom teachers will produce manuscript books, which will serve as an inspiration for the books their students will create during the upcoming school year. The Morgan Book Project-Summer Institute has an experiential and inquiry-based pedagogical approach. There will be formative and summative evaluations of the teachers' books. The Summer Institute serves as an impetus for teachers participating in the Morgan Book Project, equipping them with the tools they need to successfully carry out the program in the classroom. Developed in 2009 in collaboration with Dr. Eva Pataki, former Arts Supervisor, Cluster 2, Office of Arts and Special Projects, New York City Department of Education, the Morgan Book Project offers a model for the integration of book arts into the Next Generation ELA Learning Standards, the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts, and the National Visual Arts Standards, while addressing Charlotte Danielson's Framework for Teaching. The Morgan Book Project reflects the Morgan Library & Museum's commitment to offer its superb collection of medieval and Renaissance illuminated manuscripts as an inspiring resource for students and teachers. The program fosters collaboration amongst visual arts and classroom teachers, as they co-design a curriculum unit in partnership with the museum. The Morgan Book Project serves as a model of effective school-museum collaboration, inspiring attendees to cultivate a greater rapport with museums and cultural institutions.
