Teaching Strategies for Museums: Graphic Organizers

Smithsonian Education
Graphic Organizers, such as charts, tables, and concept maps, are tools that help students find key ideas and relationships among ideas. They are particularly effective in a museum setting. As an alternative to the often-used field trip scavenger hunt, developing a graphic organizer for a museum exhibition focuses students on answering historical questions posed by an exhibition rather than simply locating objects and reading labels. Moreover, a museum graphic organizer encourages students to identify themes, note connections, and link specific observations to larger concepts. Graphic organizers can be used for any age group and learning level. Based on your goals for the lesson, simplify the graphic organizer or increase its complexity to allow for sub-themes and supporting details. For students learning English, add visual aids and translation exercises. From Smithsonian Source, Teaching with Primary Sources website. 2005.

New strategies for conserving tropical forests

Smithsonian Libraries
In an interval of just 1–2 decades, the nature of tropical forest destruction has changed. Rather than being dominated by rural farmers, tropical deforestation now is substantially driven by major industries and economic globalization, with timber operations, oil and gas development, large-scale farming and exotic-tree plantations being the most frequent causes of forest loss. Although instigating serious challenges, such changes are also creating important new opportunities for forest conservation. Here we argue that, by increasingly targeting strategic corporations and trade groups with publicpressure campaigns, conservation interests could have a much stronger influence on the fate of tropical forests.
