This curriculum resource guide is designed to accompany the exhibition:
CONVERSATIONS: African and African American Artworks in Dialog from the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art and the Camille O. and William H. Cosby Collections
The units are designed around six themes in the exhibition developed for the purpose of teaching for content and at the same time encouraging self-expression. These classroom activities can be modified to align with Common Core and/or state’s SOLs. They can also be customized to integrate art with cross-disciplinary units in Language Arts, Social Studies, Arts, History and Culture.
