Virtual Field Trip

Imagine that you discovered an old apartment covered with forty layers of wallpaper.

What if these layers could be peeled back to reveal the stories of its past tenants?

In Poway OnStage’s Virtual Field Trip, Layer the Walls explores stories of a tenement apartment in New York City that was once home to hundreds of new immigrants.

Virtual Field Trip FAQ’s

Q:  What is the specific day/time of the field trip? Is there any live content?

A:    Everything is pre-recorded, to provide maximum flexibility and equitable accessibility across learning platforms.  It is all securely hosted on a password protected section of our website and is available for a three-week period.  You can assign it whenever fits best for your students.

 

Q:  Can the lesson be done over multiple sessions, or is the link/password limited to a single use?

A:  The link and password will work any time and as many times during the Field Trip period.

 

Q:  Does the field trip need to be given as an independent student activity or can I Zoom my kids through it all together?

A: We want you to use the materials in the format that works best for your students. Whenever possible, we do ask that you have your students individually complete the pre- and/or post- forms. They give us valuable data for our grant reports and the exit worksheet also asks questions that help complete some of the VAPA standards. If your students are working through the field trip on their own device, these elements are embedded. If you plan to Zoom your kids through the field trip together, we will provide direct links to the surveys so you can assign them separately.

 

Q:  Once I have the link, is it ok to preview the field trip so that I can best prepare my students and families for the activities?

A:  Yes, please explore the content and figure out what works best for your class!  The “map” is provided at the beginning of the Field Trip to help students navigate if you assign activities over multiple classes.

 

Q: Is my class limited to participating in just one Virtual Field Trip, or can we attend multiple trips?

A:  You are welcome to sign-up for all the trips that are appropriate for your grade level. (And thank you for your interest in sharing the arts with your students!)

 

Q:  My class grade level is above/below the recommended span of the Field Trip, can we still attend?

A:  The grade level spans are set with input from the artists as well as VAPA standards for each grade level.  If you are ONE grade above or below the recommended level, it will probably still be appropriate.  Please keep in mind that younger students may need additional guidance with some of the activities and navigating the platform and older students may not have their VAPA standards fully met with the program.  If you do sign-up, we encourage you to navigate through the trip prior to assigning it to your students in order to figure out how you may need to supplement or adapt it for your students.
