Integrating portraiture into the classroom provides exciting opportunities to connect students with history, biography, visual art, and many other subjects. The Summer Teacher Institute will take a broad look at the Portrait Gallery’s collection.  Participants will learn how to “read” portraiture and use the art as a springboard into a more in-depth discussion about biography and history. Teachers in grades kindergarten–12 may apply as individuals or as part of a team. Priority will be given to social studies, English/language arts, and visual arts teachers.

We invite K-12 teachers to come to Chicago to attend an NEH Summer Institute for Teachers to explore new ways to look at the Gilded Age and Progressive Era. We will explore a wide variety of historical—and historiographical—matters. Our focus will be on three important themes of American history— racecapitalism, and democracy—because, arguably, the most important economic and political institutions of modern America originated and took shape during the period from 1877 to 1920.
