By examining American art and artifacts from the museum's collection, this series promotes discussion of America's national character and heritage. All five lessons, developed by teams of teachers, are accompanied by reinforcement materials specifically designed to foster critical thinking skills. These programs may be scheduled individually.
America Expanding, the second lesson in this series, covers 1801-1861 and explores frontier life, the results and impact of westward expansion, landscape painting, Jacksonian democracy, and genre art.
