units of curriculum for the teaching of Regional Art through the teaching
of regional history and art have been developed with the cooperation of
Young Audiences of Greater Cleveland, the Academy for
American History managed by historians at Cleveland State University and
The Cleveland Institute of Art under a Martha Holden Jennings Foundation
grant. They are targeted for students from grades 5-16. While focusing
on teaching regional history through art, they can be useful tangentially
to science and math classes as artists use those discipline skills and
address improved learning in the Arts, improved language literacy and
as improved learning in history directly and improving learning in math,
science and technology tangentially. Nina Freedlander Gibans, a cultural
educator who has taught (K-16 in museums and colleges), written books
and developed videos related to this region’s art, has managed the
project and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
