Traveling Bag Outreach KitIf you teach in the CCISD, contact them directly about checking out the Traveling Bag Outreach Kit. There are three kits available.
If you would like to download the pre- and post-visit lesson plans, please email Katie Keller, Education Technician at firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the large size of these files, they will be sent through a secure format to download.
The Traveling Bag Outreach Kit was developed by the Mid-America Arts Alliance to be a companion education piece to the exhibition. Lesson plans focus on three themes: Media for Social Change, Children of the Poor at Work, and Children of the Poor at Play. Items included in the kit are: a vintage spool of thread, wooden clothespins, clothesline, shoeshine brush, ragpicker's sack, images of miner's headlamp and oyster shucker's knife, teddy bear, magic lantern slide, dice, and a copy of How the Other Half Lives.
Jacob Riis & the Copper Country Lesson PlansOver the summer of 2019, area teachers created lesson plans to be used in conjunction with the Jacob A. Riis: How the Other Half Lives NEH Traveling Exhibit. All lesson plans are in Microsoft Word format. Even though lesson plans were designed with certain ages and standards in mind, all can be adapted for varying needs. Michigan Social Studies Standards and Common Core English and Language Arts Standards are used. If you have questions, please contact Katie Keller, Education Technician at email@example.com or (906) 483-3175.
