Curriculum Resources for Educators

The Metropolitan Museum of Art | Apr 6, 2021

The Metropolitan Museum of Art collects, studies, conserves, and presents significant works of art across all times and cultures. The Met’s Curriculum Resources for Educators are accessible online. These scanned texts on African, Islamic, Byzantine, Roman art, and more, include questions for classroom discussion and/or activities adaptable for the high school social studies classroom. Some resources also offer an audio-discussion on a specific work, such as “The Burghers of Calais.” In addition, the Met also offers virtual school tours, free for New York City public schools and all Title I public schools. Under-resourced organizations may apply for reduced fees or waivers.
