Picturing America School Collaboration Projects: Building on the national distribution of Picturing America, the National Endowment for the Humanities invites proposals for local and regional projects that foster collaboration between K-12 teachers and humanities scholars to encourage engagement with the rich resources of American art to tell America's story. Picturing America School Collaboration Projects grants are designed to help teachers incorporate Picturing America images into the teaching of core subjects. Information about Picturing America, including the Picturing America Teachers Resource Book, can be found by visiting the Picturing America website. The images in Picturing America reflect a variety of media spanning several centuries, ranging from the work of early American Indian artists to painters such as Mary Cassatt and Jacob Lawrence, from photographers such as Dorothea Lange to architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright. These images will help students better understand America's diverse people and places and connect them to our nation's travails and triumphs. This history is reflected in the themes of Picturing America: Leadership, Freedom and Equality, Democracy, Courage, Landscape, and Creativity and Ingenuity. Goals of the Picturing America School Collaboration Projects grants are * to strengthen understanding of the connections between great works of American art and significant events, themes, and topics in the American experience; * to encourage local and regional collaboration between K-12 teachers and humanities experts who can bring appropriate knowledge to the integration of American artworks in core subjects; * to foster discussion of how to use Picturing America images among K-12 teachers within a locality or region; and * to provide access to rich scholarly resources and primary materials that support teaching.
