G:Class provides the tools necessary for high school teachers to utilize the cultural and educational resources of the New Museum, to incorporate contemporary art into the curriculum, and expand learning beyond the classroom. Lesson plans are designed to incorporate contemporary art into the classroom, and are developed in collaboration with the New Museum’s school partners to address both Museum exhibitions and New York City class curricula. The core of each lesson plan is designed to use observational and interpretive activity through inquiry and extended peer discussion to foster an informed, critical understanding of art, culture, current events, and their relationship to students’ own lives and the world around them.
