Lesson Plan: The Futures of Interpretation


This draft lesson plan is suitable for seasonal training. The outlined session introduces staff to the three-fold goal of interpretation and helps them begin to imagine how their interactions with visitors can help support these goals:

  • Interpretation engages diverse audiences in meaningful, memorable experiences with heritage resources.
  • Interpretation encourages shared stewardship and broad collaboration in preserving heritage resources.
  • Interpretation nurtures global citizens who will pursue life-long learning and help to build more just societies and a healthier planet.


By the end of the session, participants will be able to name and explain the importance of the three-fold goal of interpretation.
