About this event

This Summer Teacher Institute offers participants—classroom teachers at any grade and any subject matter, teaching artists, and cultural educators from arts or community-based organizations—to engage deeply with the work of MacArthur Fellows and reflect upon some of the most important issues and questions of our time while developing lesson plans for the 2021–2022 school year. Participants will engage in hands-on explorations of Toward Common Cause: Art, Social Change, and the MacArthur Fellows Program at 40 through project-based learning facilitated by educators from multiple Chicago museums.

The full schedule will be made available in the near future. Pending final confirmation, the Summer Teacher Institute is currently planned to happen primarily in-person at the University of Chicago and partner organizations throughout Chicago, with transportation provided.

FREE. CPDUs available for eligible educators.
