To support the Terra Teacher LabĀ from June 2011 to June 2013. Offered since 2005, this free year-long professional-development program has helped Chicago middle-grade and high-school teachers use works of American art to enrich their curricula, motivate students to read and write, and deepen students’ understandings of art, history, and other core subjects. The program supports Chicago Public Schools learning goals and national standards. It is offered in collaboration with DePaul’s Center for Urban Education, which administers the program; and the Art Institute of Chicago, where it is held.
