Viewing History Through the Arts
This residency uses analysis of music, visual arts, dance, literature and fashion in a given time period in history to guide students to a deeper understanding of that time period. We tailor the residency to the school’s particular history program and goals. Where possible, we will collaborate with local arts organizations to link student classroom learning with live performances and existing field trips. Activities are linked to North Carolina Essential Standards, are designed to be academically rigorous, and include assessments to monitor student learning. The residency culminates in a group project that students can share through digital media.
