Event Description

This program aims to enrich teachers’ understanding of how visual art can provide a unique approach to enhancing literacy skills and offer opportunities for higher-level critical thinking. Lectures, discussions, and workshops by university faculty, museum curators, and educators will demonstrate the use of how “visual text” levels the playing field for students of all reading and writing skill levels and can be used to enhance language arts achievement in the classroom.
The institute will draw upon a very successful school partnership that has been using the Center as an extended classroom and will demonstrate how this collaboration is aligned with both national and state standards in Language Arts, Social Studies, and the Visual Arts. By demonstrating how works of art in the Center’s collections can be used to enhance methods for teaching the construction and interpretation of narrative forms, the institute will give participants the tools they need to make museum visits effective.

Class will run from 10 am to 3:30 pm with a working lunch each day. Participants will assess the impact of the institute on their teaching and students’ responses in an after-school evaluation session that will take place in the spring of 2011. Each teacher will attend all four days in June/July, as well as the follow-up session in the spring of 2011. ceus are earned for full participation in the institute. The program is free of charge. Lunch and parking will be provided.
bonus! If you attend the institute with a colleague or two from the same school, we will provide you with a teacher resource packet for your classrooms consisting of: art cards, posters, a bac-Pack of gallery activities, and a dvd of images from the Center’s collection.

Give a Ride, Close a Gap

In a blog describing the new $11 million Vaccine Access Fund, a partnership of LISC, Uber, Paypal and Walgreens, LISC's President & CEO Lisa L. Glover details how the fund tackles more than the transportation gap that is keeping tens of thousands of Americans from accessing COVID-19 vaccines. "The fund offers a practical solution to an immediate problem," writes Glover. "But this is absolutely part of our larger efforts to address equity as well."

A Letter to the White House Announces $11 Million Vaccine Access Fund

In a letter to the Biden-Harris Administration, which has called for corporate America to help in the fight to end the pandemic, the CEOs of Uber, Paypal, Walgreens and LISC announced a new Vaccine Access Fund that will connect people with free rides to COVID-19 vaccine sites. LISC will administer the fund, helping close the gap for thousands of people, many of them seniors and others living in under-resourced communities, who have not been vaccinated yet because of lack of transportation.
