Persisting and Resisting: Exploring Women As Activists
This webinar, hosted by educators from the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery on October 8, 2019, is the first in a three-part series entitled A Woman’s Place Is in the Curriculum: Women’s History through American Art and Portraiture. Learn how American art and portraiture can bring diverse women’s stories into your classroom, connecting with themes you may already teach. Discover strategies for engaging your students in close looking and critical thinking across disciplines.
