Learning Through Architecture

Teacher Partnership Program

In collaboration with Intermediate Unit-1, Fallingwater’s Teacher Partnership Program is a year-long professional development program for local teachers. Each year, we invite a small group of teachers, representing a diverse range of academic disciplines and specializations from grades 3-12 to spend the school year learning about Fallingwater, architecture, the design process, and fabrication technology in IU-1’s mobile FabLab.

Throughout the school year, teachers experiment with lessons that use architecture as the point of departure for learning in their classrooms. We are pleased to share some of the lesson plans and curriculum ideas developed by our Fallingwater Teacher Partners.

For more information about joining our Fallingwater Teacher Partnership Program, please contact Ashley Andrykovitch, curator of education, aandrykovitch@paconserve.org.
