Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use the Learning Through Art for Middle School Educators curriculum?
The heart of this curriculum is a carefully constructed conversation through works of art. Each LTA/MS Curriculum Connection offers information about a work of art, questions to encourage observations and interpretations, and teacher-tested and approved suggestions for connecting to your classroom. Flexibility is a hallmark of the curriculum. Curriculum Connections offer a range of uses, from bell-ringer and do-now activities to complex, in-depth lessons. Read more about this project.

What are the different ways I can use LTA/MS in my classroom?
The curriculum is designed to be used from multiple points of view. Download and save an image; project an image directly from the site; print an image to share with friends and colleagues.
