Chicago hosts a wide-range of cultural institutions, many of whose resources are rarely tapped into by K-12 teachers. Through internationalizing curricula, students obtain a global perspective and think more critically about their surrounding world. In this workshop, the Ukrainian National Museum and the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art will serve as models for how you and your teachers might utilize the (more than 25) cultural institutions in the Chicagoland area to help further internationalize your school’s curricula.
This workshop will include a presentation of K-12 lessons on Ukrainian history, art, and culture, as well as tours of the two museums. The professional development day is applicable to teachers interested in thinking about new ways to incorporate world cultures into their curriculum. While the focus of the workshop will be on Ukraine, themes addressed can be integrated into general lesson plans to add cultural content.
This event is co-sponsored by the University of Chicago Center for International Studies (CIS) and Center for Eastern European and Russian/Eurasian Studies (CEERES), the Ukrainian National Museum, Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art, and the Chicago Cultural Alliance (CCA).
