Video: The Great Chicago Fire through Primary Sources, Part 1

Teaching with art can help educators address the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts (CCSS-ELA). In this video (part one of two), Heidi Moisan and Megan Clark of the Chicago History Museum demonstrate how works of art made in response to the Great Chicago Fire can be used as primary sources in a workshop designed for younger children.

This video is part of a series about teaching with artworks. You can explore the playlist on YouTube.
