Picturing America: Transitions from Rural to Urban Life

A professional development sequence including two meetings and three webinars (May to August 2011) for fifty K-12 Ohio teachers to consider Picturing America images in relation to America's transition from a rural to an urban society between the mid-1800s and the first half of the twentieth century.

The Ohio Historical Society proposes a Picturing America professional development series for fifty K-12 teachers on the topic of American Transitions from Rural to Urban Life. The content of the series will explore changing American social relationships, production methods, and landscapes as the country transitioned from a rural to urban lifestyle from the second half of the 19th to first half of the 20th centuries. The series will occur across the spring and summer of 2011 over the course of an orientation seminar at the Columbus Museum of Art (CMA), three content based webinars, and a final one-day conference at the Ohio Historical Society (OHS) and Ohio Craft Museum (OCM). In addition, there will be a project website where teachers can find readings, materials, and links.
