Objects have power. They have a great power to educate if we can use them effectively.

There are myriad ways to use this concept to support 21st-century skills and Common Core standards, especially for narrative writing. As Museum educators, we provide opportunities for students to be successful, to demonstrate creativity and understanding of learning objectives. We co-create and support teachers integrating art into their classrooms, and in using museum spaces and resources in their practice.
