The Great Transformation: Picturing America from the Gilded Age to World War II

Two one-day Picturing America conferences for a total of one hundred New Jersey K-12 educators to explore significant events and themes connected with America's rise in the modern era, beginning with the Gilded Age.

Newark Museum proposes two 1-day conferences for NJ educators, The Great Transformation: Seeing America from the Gilded Age to World War II. The conferences will enable 100 participants to connect the NEHs Picturing America to the teaching of American history and culture (K-12). Developed with the American Studies Graduate Program at Rutgers University, the conferences will feature scholarly lectures about an era in American history that has influenced life today and enable participants to discover/practice methods for engaging youth in in-depth studies of visual art. Participants will create lessons that utilize Picturing America and Newark Museum artworks, mounted on a dedicated blog site, will share what they have learned in their school districts and complete a survey that addresses the impact of the conferences on teaching practice, understanding of this era, awareness of new media and ways to partner with cultural organizations that maintain object collections.
