Schools at the Museum 2013>2014

Lower Secondary School

Attività per la scuola secondaria I grado nei Musei Civici di VeneziaMethodology

Depending on the subject in question and the museum chosen, the focus will either be on the historical, artistic or naturalistic aspect, adopting an approach based on narration, on the study of documentary sources, the experimentation of artistic and compositive techniques, the interpretation of works of art, comparative observation of organisms that belong to different plant and animal groups or similarities and differences in the natural world.

In each case, the educational units in the programme are based on ‘action’ as a cognitive instrument, an active modality of constructing knowledge and all are aimed at the development of creative and divergent thought.

Objectives and skills

• Direct knowledge of the grammar of visual language via the concrete experience of the elaboration and re-working of the image to be able to strengthen aesthetic and expressive skills and stimulate the ability of personal and creative production;
• Development of critical skills in the interpretation of different iconographic, documentary or cartographic sources, gleaning from them information about historic events of different periods and different geographical areas considered in their relation to the territory;
• Acquisition of knowledge regarding certain aspects of the physical world and the biological world, considering their reciprocal relations and their relationship with man with the aim of developing responsible behaviour towards natural resources and help protect the environment.
