During this day-long mini-conference for middle and high school humanities teachers, explore ways in which art can be used as both a primary source for historical inquiry and a tool to build your students’ visual literacy, research strategies, and questions.

Mini-conferences at the Art Institute support interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration among educators, museum staff, and local experts, inspiring the integration of art across the curriculum.

Teacher mini-conferences feature a distinguished keynote presentation, dynamic sessions led by museum educators, teaching artists, and other professionals, and tested curricular resources.

Registration for this event has closed.

*Lunch is included. Chicago Public School and Big Shoulders Fund School teachers are eligible for waived tuition and reimbursement for substitute teacher costs.
