Learning Lab as a Writing Tool

<p>The Smithsonian Learning Lab is a tool for searching across all the Smithsonian museums. <br><br>Let's see how it might also be used as a tool for helping students develop and support thesis statements, conduct and document research, and edit their thinking as they go along. </p> <p>Check out my mock up!</p>

Perspective-Taking: Seeing Through the Eyes of the Protagonist

<p>Avid readers and researchers know the intoxicating effect of falling into the skin of a character (real or fictional) and seeing deeply into the past or inhabiting an unknown world thanks to the power of words. How can artwork amplify this experience for passionate readers? How can it provide an entry point for those that need additional scaffolding? Participate in activities that utilize the imagination as a window to humanities content.</p>

Atlanta Under Construction

<p>This collection offers a subset of a larger photographic survey that documented Atlanta, GA in 1977 and 1979.  These photographs were taken as part of a wider program of photography surveys sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts to celebrate the bicentennial of founding of the United States.</p> <p><strong><u><br>Background</u>:</strong></p> <p>In 1975, Congress considered a proposal by senator Walter Mondale to authorize funds for the American Bicentennial Photography and Film Project (ABPFP). In the proposal, Mondale referred to the epic documentary photography program undertaken by the Farm Security Administration during the Great Depression. Building on its legacy, the ABPFP would create a new visual record of the United States during the Bicentennial celebration of American independence. </p> <p>Mondale’s proposal was passed by Congress, but without the appropriation of funds. The NEA stepped forward, adding a Bicentennial State Film Projects category under its Public Media grants, and a Photography Surveys category under Visual Arts. The impact was transformative. Federal patronage was the single most important factor in the growth of American photography in the 1970s. The Photography Surveys grants were a central component of the NEA’s success. </p> <p>Between 1975 and 1981, a total of 219 photographers conducted 69 individual surveys in 30 states and 55 cities.</p> <p>The Smithsonian American Art Museum holds 13 of these surveys:</p> <ol><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?date.slider=1950s%2C1990s&q=los+angeles+documentary&view=list&fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&fq=-name%3A%22Levinthal%2C+David%22&fq=-name%3A%22Eber%2C+Linda%22&fq=-name:%22Hernandez%2C+Anthony%22" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Los Angeles, CA</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?view=masonry&date.slider=1950s%2C1990s&fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&fq=-name%3A%22Levinthal%2C+David%22&q=long+beach+documentary" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Long Beach, CA</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?date.slider=1950s%2C1990s&q=venice&fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&fq=name%3A%22Eber%2C+Linda%22&view=list&start=20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Venice, CA</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?view=list&date.slider=1950s%2C1990s&fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&fq=-name%3A%22Levinthal%2C+David%22&fq=-name%3A%22Eber%2C+Linda%22&fq=-name%3A%22Hernandez%2C+Anthony%22&q=atlanta+documentary" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Atlanta, GA</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?date.slider=1950s%2C1990s&q=kansas+documentary&view=list&fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&fq=-name%3A%22Levinthal%2C+David%22&fq=-name%3A%22Eber%2C+Linda%22&fq=-name%3A%22Hernandez%2C+Anthony%22&start=0" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Lawrence, KS</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?date.slider=1950s%2C1990s&q=kentucky+documentary&view=list&fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&fq=-name%3A%22Levinthal%2C+David%22&fq=name:%22Burke%2C+Bill%22" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Louisville, KY</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?date.slider=1950s%2C1990s&q=kentucky+documentary&view=list&fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&fq=-name%3A%22Levinthal%2C+David%22&fq=-name%3A%22Eber%2C+Linda%22&fq=-name%3A%22Hernandez%2C+Anthony%22&fq=-name:%22Burke%2C+Bill%22" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Whitesburg, KY</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?q=galveston+&gfq=CSILP_1&fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&fq=name:%22Tichich%2C+Betty%22" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Galveston, TX</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?q=east+baltimore+documentary+survey+project&gfq=CSILP_1&fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&start=20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Baltimore, MD</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&q=mars+hill&gfq=CSILP_1" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Mars Hill, NC</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?date.slider=1970s%2C1980s&q=buffalo%2C+new+york+documentary&fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&fq=-name%3A%22Friedlander%2C+Lee%22&fq=-name:%22Christo%22" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Buffalo, NY</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&q=seattle+documentary&gfq=CSILP_1" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Seattle, WA</a> </li><li><a href="https://collections.si.edu/search/results.htm?fq=data_source%3A%22Smithsonian+American+Art+Museum%22&fq=object_type%3A%22Photographs%22&q=wyoming+survey&gfq=CSILP_1" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener" data-auth="NotApplicable">Cheyenne, WY</a> </li></ol> <p>Created for use with NEH's EDSITEment.<br></p> <p><strong>Keywords:</strong> US History, oral history, anthropology, CCOT, continuity and change over time</p>

Looking at (Art)ifacts

<p>If you could ask an artifact about every person who touched it, every conversation it has overheard, the source of each of its materials, what would you learn? How could the answers to these questions shed light on that tricky term “civilization"? A contemporary work from the Renwick Gallery will serve as a provocation, inviting participants to craft powerful questions whose answers unlock layers of understanding about the artwork's times, places, and people. This initial inquiry will scaffold later consideration of an Egyptian artifact. Taking metacognitive breaks along the way, participants will reflect upon the thinking moves that empowered them to develop incisive questions. Retaking the role of the educator, participants will reflect on the skills learned through investigation of the artwork and consider how these skills might enhance and deepen students' understanding when applied to curricular material, particularly early civilizations. </p> <p>Keywords: global education, wondering, interdisciplinary</p>
