Class Exhibition Tours at the Newberry
To aid Chicago’s efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Teacher & Student Programs will run virtual programs (via Zoom) for the duration of 2020-21. We are unable to accommodate class groups at this time.
CPScholars (previously named “Teachers as Scholars”, or TAS) is a professional development program that offers intellectually stimulating, content-based seminars led by scholars from area universities and colleges. These seminars offer participants an opportunity to reconnect with the world of scholarship in their content areas and inspire them to model the love of learning for their students. Seminar topics focus predominantly on the humanities, are related to the Newberry’s collections, and support skills emphasized by the Common Core Standards in English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies.
Unless otherwise indicated, seminars are scheduled from 9:30 am to 3 pm each day and include a catered lunch. CPScholars seminars typically include a show and tell component featuring relevant primary source materials from the Newberry’s collections. Participants earn up to five ISBE professional development credit hours per program day for attending a CPScholars seminar.
