Log Number: CAGML-248248-OMLS-20
The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico will support teachers and students by working collaboratively to develop a series of integrated curriculum modules focused on creative learning methods. Following a series of earthquakes and the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, many of Puerto Rico's schools are not safe to reopen and teachers and students with limited internet access are adjusting to online teaching and learning. The museum will pilot the curriculum modules at the Rafael M. de Labra middle and high school. The curriculum will integrate academic disciplines and visual arts, as well as a including a guide for art teachers focused on developing a greater understanding and appreciation of contemporary art while addressing social themes and incorporating examples from the museum's collection. The museum will expand lifelong learning initiatives through its MAC in el Barrio program in high need communities.
