Arkansas Declaration of Learning
Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is pleased to announce that applications are now open for Year Two of the groundbreaking Arkansas Declaration of Learning program.
Twelve prestigious national organizations have made a commitment to work with teachers and school librarians to create lesson plans, activities, and teaching tools that bring history to life through historical art and objects. Arkansas is the first state in the country to participate in this national program, which was created by the US Department of State’s Diplomatic Reception Rooms in partnership with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, and the Arkansas Department of Education. The program is now in its second year.
The ADOL team will be teaching and coaching teachers and school librarians on new and unique ways to explore civic engagement in their specific classrooms. Teachers who participate in the program will: (1) receive instruction on teaching with works of art, historical objects, and primary documents, (2) return to school with resources and an understanding of how objects can be integrated into their curriculum, and 3) earn recognition for their contribution to the ADOL national initiative.

Note: Deadline for application is 11:59 p.m. CT on March 29, 2016.
