In our effort to meet the needs of school-age audiences, museum educators have adapted their K-12 programming to align with state learning standards. Now those standards are changing. What are the Common Core Learning Standards and how will their implementation shape our work with students and teachers in the museum?

At this day-long workshop we will explore the Common Core standards and their application in museum settings. The day will feature big-picture insight from arts education experts and case studies from museums of varying sizes and disciplines on strategies they have employed in creating and adapting programs to align with the Common Core. In the afternoon we'll bring our own experiences and challenges to the table to collaborate with our peers on creative ways to meet the new standards while remaining true to the inherent wonder of learning in the museum.
