Giese, Ronald N., Judy K. Davis-Dorsey, and Joseph A. Gutierrez.  “School/Museum Collaboration in Curriculum Design and Delivery.” Visitor Behavior 7(1) (1992): 4-6.


The purpose of this study was to analyze the effectiveness of a collaborative effort between a museum and a school system to build an integrated curriculum package. The theme of the package was 18th Century Medicine and the unit was designed to enhance the science, math, and social studies instruction of fourth graders. The science, math and social studies objectives were selected from the Commonwealth of Virginia's Standards of Learning Objectives for the fourth grade in these subject areas. The project was originally funded by Title II EESA Funds (1989-1990) and was a collaborative effort of the York County School System (VA), and the Yorktown Victory Center operated by the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation.
