“Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie School in the Midwest” is the subject of a National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks of American History Workshop for Teachers in the summer of 2013. To be held in Mason City, Iowa, at The Historic Park Inn Hotel – the last standing hotel in the world designed by Frank Lloyd Wright – the workshop will feature a faculty of leading experts on Wright; Prairie School architecture, landscaping and interior design; tours of significant Prairie School sites; and collaboration time with other educators to develop curriculum which uses architecture to teach history, culture and art.
The workshop is hosted by Wright on the Park, the non-profit organization that restored The Historic Park Inn Hotel in 2011 and now focuses its efforts on educational programming.
Teachers who attend will each receive a $1,200 stipend to help offset the cost of attending the workshop. The workshop is offered at two different times; July 14-19 and August 4-9. Teachers, librarians and curriculum coordinators who wish to aply must submit an application by March 4, 2013. Attendees will be selected from the applicant pool and notified by April 1, 2013.
