Think! Contemporary

PROGRAMME FOR SCHOOLS ONLY

  • SAM at 8Q

First developed together with Haig Girls’ School, the Think! Contemporary Programme integrates school curriculum with museum visits and uses artworks from SAM’s permanent collection as primary resources for the classroom teaching and learning of Art, Humanities and English language subjects. Through close looking and discussions about artworks, a multidisciplinary approach is employed to cultivate analytical and creative thinking skills among students.

SAM will conduct trainings for participating teachers.

PRIMARY SCHOOLS

A lesson package has been created in collaboration with teachers from Geylang Methodist School (Primary), Haig Girls' School, Mayflower Primary School and St. Anthony's Primary School. 

SECONDARY SCHOOLS 

The Think! Contemporary Programme for secondary schools focuses on place-based and inquiry based learning through the use of SAM’s permanent art collection at the Learning Gallery.

Tapping on the expertise of secondary school teachers, the Think! Contemporary Programme seeks to enhance the teaching and learning of subjects such as Art, English and Humanities through activities that can be conducted prior to the visit to SAM, during the visit and after the visit.
