Table of Contents
This ASCD Study Guide is designed to enhance your understanding of Learning on Display: Student-Created Museums That Build Understanding, an ASCD book written by Linda D'Acquisto and published in May 2006. It will help you make connections between the text and your personal and professional experiences. The author, a former classroom teacher, curriculum director, and museum educator, offers step-by-step advice and practical resources for transforming your curriculum into motivating museum projects.
You can use the study guide after you have read the entire book or as you finish each chapter. The questions provided are not meant to cover all aspects of the book; rather, they address selected ideas that might warrant further reflection. Most of the questions are ones you can think about on your own, but you might consider discussing your ideas with colleagues who are reading Learning on Display--or planning a school museum project.
The author invites you to share your ideas, examples, and questions about school museum projects with other teachers through her Web site, www.kidcurators.com. For more information about how to post your ideas, or if you have any questions or comments about this study guide or about the book, you may contact the author at
