- VTS tours encourage students to read artwork as a primary source document. Evidence based learning is emphasized through a series of questions facilitated by the VTS trained docent with each question demanding deeper investigation requiring the students to defend their observations. Advanced use of VTS skills by students can be applied to viewing maps, charts and reading text.
- These tours can be customized to your curriculum offering the option of an in-classroom introduction followed by a museum visit presented by a trained docent facilitator.
