MAM Educator Guides are designed to provide teachers with questions, ideas, and materials for facilitating inquiry-based, open-ended dialogues with students of all ages. Taking artworks as their points of departure, they encourage conversations reaching into other subject areas, such as English and Social Studies. To request a hard copy of these guides, please email [email protected]. The Constructing Identity in America (1766–2017) Curriculum Guide is available online.
