The American Skyscraper: Transforming Chicago and the Nation
On our trip to the Massie Heritage Center in February, I was amazed at how excited you all were to learn about and identify common architectural features found in buildings. During the entire trip my brain was buzzing with how I could bring the architectural studies back to our classroom and fit it into our science and math lessons. After doing some research and talking to a colleague, I came across an opportunity to travel to Chicago, meet other teachers, and work together to come up with lessons focused on architecture. You inspired me to apply, and I'm happy to report that I was accepted into the program! In July, I will travel to Chicago and work with those at the Chicago Architecture Foundation in a workshop called "The American Skyscraper: Transforming Chicago and the Nation". I'm so excited for this opportunity to travel to a new place and work with other teachers to come up with fun lessons to bring back to Charles Ellis. Thank YOU, because your enthusiasm inspired me to pursue this opportunity!
