To support a new teacher and student program focused on the art and visual culture of World War II. Chicago Public Schools high-school teachers attending a one-day seminar, led by an art historian, will explore a range of primary and secondary sources from the Newberry’s collection of WWII material and learn techniques for teaching with and about these primary sources in the classroom. The program includes student field trips to the Newberry Library as well.
