Welcome to the world of Architeacher™!
As suggested by our name, teachers are
the key to our success, and we value the creative and innovative ideas
they consistently bring to the program. Our Architeachers are life-long
learners who love to absorb new knowledge and are constantly looking
for ways to enhance the learning experience for their students. We applaud
the model school programs that
are helping students to become future decision makers in their community.
Teachers have a lot of demands placed upon them, and they have good
reason to ask us why they should include architecture in the schools.
As certified teachers with many years of classroom experience, we tell
them that our curriculum is research based and designed to expose children
to learning through action-based projects that target multiple intelligences.
All of our unit and lesson plans
are designed within the framework of educational
standards mandated by most state boards of education.
We encourage teachers to network
with experts so that they get help setting up an Architeacher program.
There are many models for setting up an Architeacher program, but most
are enhanced by well-researched teaching resources. I’m sure you
know, too, that even a small amount of funding allows a teacher to offer
exciting educational adventures to their students.
