Especially for Educators: Speaking and Listening Skills

Memorial Art Gallery

"Let’s Talk: Using Art to Develop Student Speaking and Listening Skills." Looking at art gives students plenty to talk about! Join Memorial Art Gallery educators to learn strategies teachers can use to help their students enjoy public speaking as they practice forming and asking questions, participate in active dialogues, and think on their feet! Participants will receive templates for talking about art and will have the opportunity to practice it themselves in the museum.

  • Cost: $25
  • Learning Objectives: Participants will master tools to engage in rich and vigorous conversation while finding information and connections in visual “texts.”
  • CC Standards for Speaking and Listening: 1, 2, 4
  • Target audience: Art, Classroom teachers 4-8
