Developed in conjunction with the exhibition Senufo: Art and Identity in West Africa (on view through May 31, 2015), this educational resource introduces students to objects produced by a group of linguistically related peoples inhabiting northern Côte d’Ivoire, western Burkina Faso, and southern Mali in an area known as the three-corner region. By comparing works from the exhibition with those from the museum’s permanent collection, students can practice skills required by state and national academic standards. In this resource, teachers will find images, selected information, and Common Core–aligned prompts for classroom use.
