CCA@CCA Teaching Modules are designed to support classroom learning related to creative citizenship. They bundle videos, readings, and worksheets produced by The Creative Citizens in Action initiative, together with prompts that faculty can use to facilitate course discussions.

Teaching Modules

In what ways does the materiality of an artwork matter?

This teaching module recommends articles and videos in connection to the Materiality of Resistance, a symposium (March 7-8, 2024) exploring the artistic deployment of materials as tools to imagine, promote, and enact resistance to the status quo in American art and visual culture.

How do we cultivate a sense of Belonging in the creative academic environment?

This teaching module is a living curriculum that records and supplements the Fall 2023 Creative Citizens Series, providing teachers and students with useful tools and ideas that can be implemented in the classroom.

What does "home" mean to you?

This teaching module is designed to accompany CCA class visits to Recognitions / 认 • 知, a solo exhibition by CCA alum Christine Wong Yap (BFA Printmaking 1998, MFA Printmaking 2007). Recognitions / 认 • 知 is on view at the new CCA Campus Gallery Wednesday 11am–7pm, Thursday–Friday 11am–4pm, and by appointment, through March 17, 2023.


How do you practice Communal Responsibility?

In this CCA@CCA Teaching Module, students are encouraged to reflect on their creative interests and make a plan to mobilize them in support of their community.


What is your voting story?

This CCA@CCA Teaching module asks students to share their voting experiences and prepares them to actively participate in upcoming elections. This module is appropriate for all students, whether they are eligible or ineligible to vote.
