Curriculum Resource Units
As part of the School and Educator Program, several Curriculum Resource Units are available for use in upper elementary/middle school classrooms. Two of the Curriculum Resource Units are available to download here. "Reading the World of Art" and "ExploreASIA," are the third and fourth units in an ongoing series that includes "Exploring African Arts: A Discovery of African Cultures" and "Imagine That! Stories in Art," all of which are available for loan through the museum’s Educator's Resource Program.
The "ExploreASIA" curriculum includes a full-color set of transparencies, and the "Exploring African Arts" curriculum is enhanced by a set of full-color posters. For more information about the Curriculum Resource Units and how to incorporate them into the classroom, contact Brandi Breslin, Coordinator of Gallery Interpretation and School & Educator Programs at 352-392-9826 x2113 or
