William Reese Company Teacher Fellowship

The William Reese Company Teacher Fellowship seeks to enrich high school curriculum by encouraging research into the development of interdisciplinary connections between American art and core curriculum subjects of language arts, history, social studies, and the sciences. Administered by the Crystal Bridges Library, the Fellowship is designed to encourage creative research projects that draw on the assets of the Library to create arts-integrated curriculum that will enhance traditional teaching methods and student engagement.
