The Art of the Ancient Near East: A Conference for Educators
Metropolitan Museum
October 16, 2010
9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
Uris Center for Education, ground floor

The Museum offers a variety of programs and resources designed for elementary-, middle-, and high-school educators that explore objects in the Museum’s collection and special exhibitions, interdisciplinary curriculum integration, and methods for teaching with objects.

The art of the ancient Near East is essential to our understanding of the rise of civilizations in the Tigris and Euphrates river valleys and beyond, the development of the cuneiform writing system, the exchanges between ancient cultures, and the important roles of the king, the gods, and the natural world. Join us for gallery conversations with Museum curators and educators and develop a lesson for your students. All participating teachers receive their own copy of the new teacher resource Art of the Ancient Near East.

Although all K–12 educators are encouraged to attend, this program is especially pertinent to teachers of social studies, language arts, and visual arts. Please register online to sign up.

Fee: $20 (includes instruction and materials; lunch is not provided)
