Appealing To An Audience

Tenement Museum Exploration

Opening

Your teacher will guide you as you explore the Tenement Museum and demonstrate some key examples of the ways it is tailored to its audience.

An exhibit can build a connection with an audience by connecting with the audience’s preexisting knowledge or emotions and then building on that knowledge or connecting to those emotions.

  • In your museum exhibit team, look further into the exhibit and choose one key example of something else the exhibit does to connect with its audience.
  • Be prepared to share your example and impressions in the next section of the lesson.
  • Designate one group member who will do the sharing. It should be a member of the group who has not yet performed this duty unless you have all taken at least one turn.
