Two conferences of two days each in summer 2009 for up to 100 educators, to strengthen the use of Picturing America images in the teaching of core subjects in the school curriculum.

Up to 100 educators from diverse geographic regions will take part in two, two-day conferences in Boston on the democratic tradition in American art and engage in follow-up activities to apply the knowledge they gain with the support of project staff and scholars. The major goals of the project are: (1)To deepen the knowledge, capacity and confidence of educators to teach about important works of art as an expression of the inclusive democratic tradition in America; (2)To cultivate an understanding of how to incorporate a diverse array of artworks across core K-12 subjects; (3)To model to participating educators the ways in which local art resources inform and enrich classroom studies; and (4) To generate a lasting, on-line resource, free for use by the public, to disseminate the highlights of the conferences, as well as the curriculum projects they generate, to all interested educators.
