Amon Carter Museum of American Art

Museum Pre-Visit Video

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art developed a brief video on the museum’s student tour program. Created in direct response to teacher feedback, this video featured educators from a variety of grade levels and disciplines sharing their successful strategies for preparing students for a museum fieldtrip and extending the museum experience once back in the classroom. It included teachers’ perspectives on the impact of art museum tour experiences on student learning and development. The purposes of the video was to motivate teachers to use the museum’s existing pre-visit materials to prepare students for their tours, serve as a tool for teachers to advocate for museum fieldtrips with their administrators, and educate all of the museum’s audiences about the student tour program. This video is available to everyone on the museum’s website and posted on VIMEO online community for sharing instructional teacher videos.
