Re: School field trips and cancellations

January 18th 2019

Dear Brian,We track cancellations and the main reason is that school administrators either do not approve the dates of the trip or teachers do not have time to get the trip through the lengthy district approval process.I hope this helps.Olivia*From: *"Brian Buttafuoco [email protected] [talk at museum-ed.org]" <[email protected]>*To: *"talk at museum-ed.org" <[email protected]>*Sent: *Friday, January 18, 2019 12:35:25 PM*Subject: *[talk] School field trips and ...Continue Reading

Re: Social Emotional Learning Standards (in Schools) + Museums

January 18th 2019

Hi Kaitlin, Thanks so much for the tip. These programs are exactly the kind I was looking for. I have yet to find a history museum example, though! Thanks for the great feedback about our session in Austin. The one about Treaty Oak, right? Maybe I'll see you at another AASLH conference. Thanks again! Andrea K.

School field trips and cancellations

January 18th 2019

As a History museum, we typically have not had to advertise for our tours and field trips outside of liaising among our school district contacts, and school district curriculum mainly dictates what the schools come to see.  But I would like to know if anyone out there tracks field trips and tours that are cancelled by schools and groups.  Curious to know if there are specific trends that anyone sees in respect to why they cancel.  Any feedback is appreciated.  Thank you. Brian Buttafuoco | ...Continue Reading

January 17th 2019

Hi Amanda, What a great opportunity. Are you able to disclose a salary range? I've seen a lot of job postings come through here lately that don't disclose a salary range, despite it being an inequitable hiring practice not to, and am hoping that will change. Thanks! *Arryn Davis____*Education Collection & Program Coordinator Burke Museum | University of Washington Box 353010 | Seattle, WA 98195www.burkemuseum.org_ On Thu, Jan 17, 2019 at 12:15 PM Amanda Kodeck ...Continue Reading

RE: Social Emotional Learning Standards (in Schools) + Museums

January 17th 2019

Hi Andrea, Texas as a whole doesn't have codified SEL Standards right now, but there's conversation around it. I think certain school districts have decided to focus on it and set some form of goals or standards. The Blanton Museum of Art in Austin has certain school field trip programs that have a Social Emotional Learning Component. Here's their general school tours page: https://blantonmuseum.org/university-programs/school-programs/ Check out specifically Tales & Trails as well as Art and Feelings.  ...Continue Reading

Social Emotional Learning Standards (in Schools) + Museums

January 17th 2019

Hi all, I'm looking for examples of museums that are marketing school programs to meet the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) standards in their state. So far, only 4 states have SEL standards for grades K-12: Illinois, Kansas, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. All 50 states have them for pre-school. But there seems to be a movement afoot for states to create these kinds of standards for older grades. Although there is lots of talk in the museum community about empathy, and well-being, I haven't seen museums ...Continue Reading

Re: All grade level school visits

January 16th 2019

IKEducation works with our local school district to provide field trips and custom programs to any/all grades K-12. So far we have been successful in creating relationships with 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 10th, and 12th grades.  Most of these relationships were cultivated through individual teachers, word of mouth, and most importantly, asking the teachers what they/ need, what about your museum would enhance their /established curriculum, and how you can make the field trip process easier for th ...Continue Reading
