Architeacher is a program that is dedicated

elegance and craftsmanship of buildings from the past, strong focus
is given to building student attitudes toward preserving the architectural
Architeacher’s staff and consultants
represent two worlds—architecture and education. This partnership
offers validity to the program, as experts from the field of architecture
provide the knowledge of architectural history and design, and certified
teachers and university professors insure that the program is compatible
with the latest research in educational practice.
Architeacher has a 25 year history of success providing teacher inservice
and curriculum resource materials
to schools, museums and public service organizations. Architeacher’s
conceptual base was established in 1975 through research funded by the
Illinois Arts Council and the National Trust for Historic Preservation,
and our staff development program has continued to receive funding to
train teachers both nationally and world wide. We encourage you to contact
us if you are interested in helping us shape a better architectural
environment for your community.
