Philadelphia Museum of Art ESL Activity. Instructor and Student Editions.
Preece, Robert; Tomlinson, Glenn
Both teacher and student editions of a guide for a tour of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, designed for students in an intensive English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) program at Temple University (Pennsylvania) are presented here. They were intended to provide a content-based tour of a local art museum for university ESL students that ESL teachers could teach with limited or no knowledge of art required. In the intensive ESL program, the tour is used both for a content-based field trip experience and in an elective course on the visual arts. The teacher guide contains teacher notes, a script to be read to students at the museum, and exercises for comprehension, description, recall, and discussion. The exercises focus on both appreciation of art and on daily living situations related to the trip, and include pre-visit, during-visit, and post-visit activities. In the teacher edition, teacher prompts and supplemental activities are also suggested. The student edition contains only the exercises. It is suggested that the activities could be adapted to any museum. (MSE)
