The de Young Museum in San Francisco offers this collection of resources for art educators. While some of these items are designed to accompany a visit to the de Young Museum, many of these resources may be adapted and used in art and social studies classrooms across the globe. These resources are divided into three categories. In Get Smart with Art, teachers will find a collection of slideshows that connect items in the de Young Museum with a variety of social studies topics. For instance, the slideshow, "Site in Sight: How Location Shapes Perspectives," highlights a number of artworks that demonstrate "the individual voice of each artist examining his or her unique perspective of a concept, place, time, or idea." Meanwhile, the Art & Science section features a number of interdisciplinary materials, including lesson plans, developed by the de Young Museum in partnership with the California Academy of Sciences. Finally, the Teacher's Guide section contains additional information about items in the de Young Museum.
