Preparing Your Students
Sorry, registration is closed. But there’s still some useful info for teachers!
Although the Pittsburgh Past—Pittsburgh Present program is now over, if you’re a teacher interested in some of the program’s educational tools, read about our Classroom Extensions. See how you can incorporate some of these concepts as you use some of the photographs from the exhibitions to help your students examine issues of history, identity, and community. All of the photographs from Teenie Harris, Photographer: An American Story are still available for viewing and can easily be incorporated into your classroom discussions. While the complete inventory of photographs from Picturing the City are not yet available online, you can still refer to some of the images here, or even use contemporary photos of the city taken by your own students to complement your lesson plans.
