Our Work in Chicago

In Chicago, demand from teachers, administrators, and districts for Facing History’s professional development is growing at a rapid pace. Adding to our work across the region, our new Partner School initiative broadens and deepens Facing History’s impact in individual Chicago Public Schools. Facing History’s ever expanding teacher network in the greater Chicago region allows us to reach more than 446,400 middle and high school students in public, independent, charter and religious schools each year. Every day, Facing History provides teachers with the tools they need to empower students to become engaged, informed, and active citizens of tomorrow.
