Chicago Participating Schools

Facing History is incorporated into middle school and high school curriculum in a variety of ways. It can be taught as an entire course, or infused into existing courses; as an elective, or as part of the core curriculum; in social studies, language arts, or as an interdisciplinary course. Facing History program associates work one-on-one with teachers to help them use our materials in the most appropriate ways.

Chicago Schools Alliance

The Chicago Schools Alliance was launched in 2015, grounded in evidence that “whole-school implementation leads to increased teacher effectiveness and commitment, improvements in students’ academic and civic learning outcomes, a safer and more respectful classroom environment, and a transformed school culture.”

Today, 40 Chicago-area middle and high schools partner with Facing History for whole school work, including 35 Chicago Public Schools. This collaboration gives school leaders meaningful tools with which to shape, strengthen, and support the vision, mission, climate, and academic structures and expectations of the school. Social studies, English, and humanities teachers in the school implement Facing History and Ourselves case studies which engage students in examining historical and contemporary examples of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism in order to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry. Through work with the whole school faculty around adult learning, the community and relationships between staff members are strengthened and the sense of collective efficacy is deepened as the social-emotional needs of adults are attended to in this partnership as well.
