Classroom and Curricula

This section provides links to a database on multicultural teaching and to two different teaching resources that address the use of images for teaching of art, history, and more. These digital resources include classroom ideas, archives of digitized imagery, and bibliographies of global visual culture.

Picturing United States History: An Interactive Resource for Teaching with Visual Evidence

Picturing United States History: An Interactive Resource for Teaching with Visual Evidence incorporates a diverse range of visual material on American history and culture. Produced as part of the American Social History Project by the Center for Media and Learning at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, this digital resource provides online “Lessons in Looking” and a guide to web resources, forums, essays, reviews, and classroom activities to help teachers integrate visual evidence into their classrooms.

Visualizing the Past Project

Developed by the Visual Studies Graduate Certificate Program at the University of Southern California, the Visualizing the Past Project provides information about incorporating images into historical research. The site makes available a library of collections of digitized imagery. Organized by century or period and linking to a culturally and historically diverse set of image collections, the project offers an interactive bibliography for scholars on the history of visual culture—including bibliographies on the visual culture of China and Japan—and a usage guide for students and scholars with information on how to cite images in their work.
