Classes & Workshops

Using programs from the collection as a means of illustration and investigation, Paley Center Educators lead sessions on a wide range of subjects such as advertising, the documentary form, and the civil rights movement. Inquiry-based classes are ninety minutes in length. They seek to build analytical thinking, viewing, and listening skills and attempt to provide insight into the roles television and radio play in our culture. All classes are aligned with and support the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy, and the New York State Learning Standards for Social Studies, English Language Arts, and Visual Arts. Supporting educational materials for classroom use are available for most classes.

On-site classes are available in New York.
