Traveling exhibits allow MOTAL exhibits to come to your library, school, or corporate venue. There are currently two exhibits available for loan.
Horace Mann: The Father of American Public Education
This special exhibit, which debuted in 2006 at California State University at Long Beach (CSULB), explores Horace Mann’s successes and struggles. Mann was the first to fight for education to reflect true democracy. This interactive exhibit includes a film segment that features Mann’s dedicated work to create equality in public schools. Students are encouraged to think about how Mann’s work in the mid-19th century influenced today’s schools. The exhibit includes an assortment of Mann’s books and reprints.
Maria Montessori: Honoring the Individual
This exhibit shines light on a controversial yet innovative and highly respected individual from the field of education. The Montessori method worked in classrooms one hundred years ago and it continues to work in classrooms today. Eye-catching photos and touchable artifacts reinforce the idea that students learn well when they develop their individual talents in individual ways. Large photographs and a short video depict children of different ages using the manipulatives that Montessori strongly supported in her teachings. A small library of articles and books includes information on Montessori.
