This piece came to us from one of our allies in the community, teacher extraordinaire Kelly O’Keefe Boettcher. Kelly learned about the museum when she staffed the Ulster Project and has continued to connect us with her school, Rufus King High School. Learn why she thinks you should get on the bus, both as funders and for teachers!
Truth be told, I’m not a big fan of field trips. The bus is always late and someone inevitably forgets to bring a lunch; having said that, after 17 years in the classroom, my only repeat excursion has been to the Jewish Museum of Milwaukee. Without fail, every time I take a group of students to the JMM, we spend the next few days if not weeks referencing the conversations we had and the learning we shared.
Scheduling a field trip to the Jewish Museum Milwaukee will be a collaborative process. JMM staff will partner with you to guarantee a workshop or a program that is specific and unique to you and your learners. Whether you are looking for an established curriculum or the opportunity to generate something new, JMM staff will guide you every step of the way. A field trip to the Jewish Museum of Milwaukee is worth your time and your students will remember it long after class is dismissed.
