Authentic Experiences · Innovative Instruction
The Teaching Museum's mission is to provide Authentic Experiences & Innovative Instruction that support student critical thinking and learning. Our programs:
- Are directly tied to the GPS/GSE
- Provide students a spark to connect with and respond to learning
- Assist in building the educational foundation for college- and career-ready graduate
…one of the ways you get kids to read and write and to be interested… is to fire up their imaginations; give them interesting stuff to read, give them challenging things to write.
-Sir Ken Robinson, Education and Creativity Expert, TED Radio Hour, NPR, Jan.
The Teaching Museum provides hands-on educational exhibits and arts-based programming that engage students in the Humanities, Language Arts, Mathematics, Sciences, and Fine Arts, with the goal of improving student achievement.
The Museum introduces students from kindergarten through twelfth-grade to fundamental concepts in creative and imaginative ways. All programs are curriculum-based and support the Georgia Standards of Excellence.
Please be aware that any parent chaperones/volunteers joining fieldtrips hosted at the Teaching Museums must be processed and approved by your school's front office prior to arriving at the Museum. The Museum cannot approve chaperones to join student programs. Parent Chaperones/volunteers must have school-issued "volunteer" or "visitor" stickers to be allowed entrance to the Teaching Museum, whether they travel with the student group or on their own.
