      Abstract

      Gilcrease on Wheels is an initiative designed to project the Gilcrease Museum’s extraordinary American collections in a multi-faceted educational package that includes on-site programming, pre-visit preparation, and post-visit activities and evaluation to rural school districts and under-served communities in Oklahoma. Gilcrease on Wheels utilises Gilcrease Museum’s extensive collections of American (North America, Mesoamerica, and South America) art, archaeology, and historical documents to enliven the classroom experience while addressing appropriate teaching standards in social studies, art, and language arts to offer a well-rounded, complementary learning experience through exhibits on Oklahoma history and Native American cultures. By introducing Gilcrease collections, in-class enrichment, new activities, and incentives to explore local history, this program promotes critical thinking and encourages students to explore their part of the world. Gilcrease on Wheels incorporates electronic interactive experiences which are age-appropriate for each grade level. Gilcrease on Wheels was inaugurated at the Poteau Public Library on October 23rd, 2014 with successful programming for the third grade. By the end of 2014, over 2000 children in rural schools had participated in programs. The third grade interactive experience incorporates the use of sounds from nature to match to items in the exhibit. The first three years of Gilcrease on Wheels the program focuses on reaching children in rural southeast Oklahoma, including the counties of LeFlore, Haskell, Latimer and Sequoyah. Gilcrease on Wheels gradually will expand to additional grade levels and topics. Age-appropriate techniques and applicable learning standards for each grade will guide development of new curricula incorporating electron interactive experiences. By 2017, Gilcrease on Wheels will expand to cover other under-served, rural areas across Oklahoma
