Being Present in the Moment: Teaching About Current Events Through Works of Art  

You can’t just leave current events at the classroom door—your students are affected by the news, too. But for the prepared educator, this can be a teaching opportunity, not an obstacle. If that sounds like you, or you’d like it to, then we invite you to join us for a Summer Teacher Institute focused on teaching current events through art.

Early American Art Gallery

Open to teachers of all subject areas, this interactive, virtual PD session will show you how to incorporate art and current events into your existing curriculum. Over the course of the week, you’ll learn strategies and methodologies from a series of experts that will help you facilitate rich discussions and get the most from your classroom conversations. Worried about the pace? Dedicated practice time with your fellow participants, light homework, and daily office hours will ensure that you walk away from every session with confidence and skills you can apply in your next lesson.

Don’t make your students leave the world behind when they come to class.

Summer Teacher Institutes are virtual, presented via Zoom.

Note: Summer Institute is free, but there is a $50 materials fee due upon registration. 30 hours of PD credit available.
