Educator Workshop | Chicago’s Stars and Stripes
Our educator development programs provide rich and unique experiences with history.
Since its adoption in 1917, the Chicago flag has been an iconic symbol of the city, providing a glimpse into local history and the stories that make the city we know today. This workshop is organized around the symbols on the flag and covers a variety of events and time periods, such as the city’s waterways, neighborhoods, Fort Dearborn, the Great Chicago Fire, the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, and the 1933–34 A Century of Progress International Exposition. The session includes engaging instructional strategies and resources to take back to your classroom, time in our exhibitions, and an orientation to our online resources. Light breakfast refreshments will be provided, and the program concludes with a raffle drawing.
Earn 3 PD hours. Recommended for teachers of grades 3 to 12.
