Educators Workshop

As a major cultural institution in Atlanta the Museum is committed to supporting the community through specially designed programs and events that will extend the exhibition’s impact to a vast and diverse audience. The Museum hosts thousands of school groups, families, teachers, and students of all ages each year. Of these students, more than half are from Metro-Atlanta public schools. 

For educators to best understand how to use the exhibition and Museum as an educational tool, the Museum will host three educators workshops prior to the opening. The workshop includes a speech by the exhibition’s Chief Curator and Duncan Sandys, a direct descendant of Winston Churchill. The educators will  also receive a tour of the museum from Rodney Cook, the President of the National Monuments Foundation. Each teacher will be provided with an information packet that includes how the exhibition aligns with Georgia’s Common Core Standards, sample curriculum for the day prior and post field trip, logistics, and activities at the museum.
