To support “Teaching by Design,” a multi-year program and website that introduces K–12 teachers to Wright’s designs and philosophy and their relationships to contemporary issues in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (STEAM), along with strategies for integrating art and design into daily classroom instruction. The grant supports 12 professional-development seminars, 100 new online lesson plans, evaluation, and promotion of online teacher resources.  Piloted in 2016 with the Terra Foundation’s support, the next iteration serves 90 or more K–12 teachers and 9,000 students from 40 schools, along with 3,000 new website users.
