What is Liberty (General Museum Tour)
Recommended for Grades 4-12
During this introductory tour experience, students identify the meaning of liberty by exploring the Museum’s core galleries. Through multimedia presentations, exhibit discovery, interactive activities, and meaningful discussion, students will learn about symbols of liberty throughout history and be introduced to people from around the world who did extraordinary things in the name of liberty. The tour program provides a comprehensive overview of the concept of liberty and establishes a solid foundation for further investigation and analysis in additional workshop experiences offered through the National Liberty Museum.
Conflict Resolution Toolkit (Workshop)
Recommended for grades 4-12
During this interactive workshop, students will learn practical strategies for taking action when they see an opportunity to be an “upstander” for justice. Through roleplay and discussion, students will be introduced to a variety of conflict resolution strategies and equip their toolkits with the skills needed to address conflict in responsible, productive ways. They will come away with the understanding that conflict is a normal part of life and, when met with active listening and reason, can turn into formative learning experiences.
Heroes, From Comics to Reality (Workshop)
Recommended for grades 4-6
In this gallery walkthrough and interactive workshop, students explore what it means to be a hero, and identify real-life heroes in the world today. Through investigation and discussion, students will dig deeper into the stories of people who have worked to ensure liberty for themselves and others. Drawing on the character traits of heroes, each student will create their own superhero who embodies values that are important to them and addresses social issues that matter to them.
Media Literacy Today: A Credibility Crash Course (Workshop)
Recommended for grades 4-8
During this interactive workshop, students will enhance their media literacy and research skills through games and discussion. Students will learn how to investigate sources based on their currency, relevance, authority, accuracy, and purpose, and choose sources that are appropriate for the research questions at hand. Whether you’re preparing to do a research project or encouraging a more informed way to navigate the internet’s many sources, this workshop will leave students with concrete ways to evaluate the information they are faced with every day.
Allies in Action (Workshop)
Recommended for grades 6-12
This gallery walkthrough and workshop will lead students to a discovery of rights and responsibilities by examining social movements that aim to protect liberty for others. During this interactive experience, students will study art, videos, and other primary source materials to learn about the importance of allies and allyship in the fight for equal rights. Students will discuss the presence of allies today, and how they can affect positive social change. Reflecting on their own motivations and inspiration, students will create a work of art to share their vision for change.
