A gifted storyteller and a masterful painter, Norman Rockwell was also chronicler of his times. His images celebrate the extraordinary in the commonplace, inspiring us to see that which we may not have noticed ourselves during the course of our busy lives. Universal and particular, his striking scenes of everyday life tell America’s story with affectionate humor, dignity and kindness. The beauty, warmth and integrity of his artworks, created for mass publication, resonates as strongly today as when they were first painted.
The lessons and ideas for learning in the Norman Rockwell Museum’s Four Freedoms Curriculum are adaptable for elementary and secondary grade levels, and educators are encouraged to choose those best suited to individual class needs and educational goals.
The Four Freedoms curriculum features more than fifty individual/adaptable lesson plans to date, with accompanying assessments, imagery and related resources, including artworks by Norman Rockwell and other artists, archival photographs and films, notable speeches, book and vocabulary lists, and a bibliography for each unit. In addition, each lesson will be specifically linked to national curriculum standards/college and career standard for teacher reference.
