In this cross-disciplinary series of workshops, Chicago Public School teachers will deepen their knowledge of American photography in its artistic and historical contexts. Working with original photographs from the Museum of Contemporary Photography’s collections and exhibitions, participants will learn strategies for developing multiple literacies with their students, and create and implement curriculum connecting the arts to the Common Core English Language Arts and History/Social Studies Literacy Standards. Curricular resources, including image sets for classroom use will be distributed.
