The Noguchi Museum Teacher Think Tank

The Think Tank is a group of classroom teachers and museum educators who meet five times during the school year to collaboratively explore topics related to school and museum education. For the 2014-2015 year, the Think Tank will take the form of a collaborative laboratory where participants will be encouraged to experiment in their own teaching practice both during and outside of sessions. Together we will consider the questions: What have you always wanted to try in your teaching practice? What does it mean to experiment? When is a risk worth taking? Meetings are held Thursdays from 4:30-6:30pm and on Election Day.

Past Think Tank Topics:

For the 2013-2014 year, the Think Tank explored the questions: What kind of philosophical questions do students pose and address with a work of art? When does inquiry with art become philosophical inquiry? 

During the 2012-2013 school year, the Think Tank wondered, "What does success look like for a school tour at an art museum?" A report sharing advice for teachers and for museum educators can be found here
