Teaching Critical Thinking through Art with the National Gallery of Art | SmithsonianX on edX
Introducing the National Gallery of Art's first online course, Teaching Critical Thinking through Art with the National Gallery of Art. Based on the Museum's popular Art Around the Corner professional development program for teachers in Washington, D.C., this five-part online course provides everything you need to begin creating a culture of critical thinking and collaboration for any classroom, subject, or level. You do not need an art background or museum access to successfully integrate these “Artful Thinking” course materials into your teaching. Your focused attention, willingness to experiment, and commitment to trying new discussion practices with your students is all that is required.
