Newark Museum (Newark, NJ 07102-3109)
Ted Lind (Project Director: October 2008 to August 2011)
"American Visions" a Picturing America School Collaboration Project

Three two-and-one-half day conferences in winter, spring, and summer 2010, for a total of 225 educators, to strengthen the use of Picturing America images in teaching core subjects in schools.

The Newark Museum proposes to present American Visions, a School Collaboration Project that will provide 225 American K-12 educators and librarians with the knowledge, skills, and resources that they will need to design, implement, and evaluate curriculum lessons/units that connect with the goals of Picturing America. Building on the success of a modest Picturing America teacher institute presented at the Museum in August 2008 (supported by a NEH Chairmans Grant), this proposal will give the participants opportunities to collaborate with educators from across the nation, museum educators and curators, prominent scholars in the humanities, educational specialists in curriculum design/evaluation, and computer specialists. "American Visions" will be comprised of pre-conference activities, three 2 and 1/2 day conferences held throughout 2009/2010, and post-conference evaluation and dissemination sessions utilizing technological resources.
