Reviled and Revered is an online update of a 1992 edition of Art to Zoo, now called Smithsonian in Your Classroom, published by the Smithsonian Office of Education, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.

Our purpose is to help teachers bring into their classrooms the educational power of museums and other community resources. Smithsonian in Your Classroom draws on the Smithsonian's hundreds of exhibitions and programs--from art, history, and science to aviation and folklife--to create classroom-ready materials for grades 3-8. Each of the four annual print issues explores a single topic through an interdisciplinary, multicultural approach. The Smithsonian invites teachers to duplicate Smithsonian in Your Classroom materials for educational use.
