Education Special Preview

Student visitor takes notes in our permanent exhibit, Honoring Our Journey.

Our Educator Special Preview (ESP) program offers free preview tours for educators who want to see the galleries and historic spaces before booking a tour. Education staff members will meet with you and discuss how The Wing can best customize a tour for you and your students. We are available to meet Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 5pm. 

To schedule your visit, please call the Tour Manager at 206.623.5124 ext 125, with your desired appointment date, time, and the number of educators attending. 

School Partnership Program

In 2016 we launched year-long partnership option for schools and districts (encompassing entire grade bands) that integrates:
  • Professional development training (clock hours);
  • Online curriculum resources and in-classroom instruction;
  • Historical and neighborhood tours for students at the museum; and
  • Parent Engagement Program to connect them with their student’s experience
The partnership is a comprehensive program starting with teachers, followed by classroom-museum curriculum integration, student visits to the museum, follow-up lessons and synthesis and culminates in parent engagement.

We recognize that the full package may seem like a large commitment, and even may be outside of some school budgets, however, each component can be selected independently, or in different configurations to design a partnership that better fits your school’s needs.

This longer-term, deeper relationship between the museum and schools is creating a much more positive experience for teachers and students, with students arriving more prepared to dialogue, analyze history and to explore. Teachers are ex-pressing their appreciation for how our program has made the connection to Common Core that much easier.

In the coming 2016-2017 school year, we would be happy to partner with your school, and the greater community that supports your institution.
