Congratulations to Chris Kuchyt of the Social Studies Department for being accepted into the Chicagoland Built Environment Institute. This cohort will offer Chris and other educators the opportunity to explore, research and build the tools to facilitate their respective learners’ engagement with the history of segregation that are structured around specific examples of the built environment in Chicago and the surrounding area.
Mr. Kuchyt is a 22-year veteran teacher of the Social Studies Department that teaches World History, Sociology, History of Chicago, and Geography. The Chicagoland Built Environment Institute will provide his students a more thorough understanding of topics and events they discuss.
The institute was organized by the Humanities 2020 Mellon Grant initiative at Lake Forest College in Partnership with the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH), Chicago History Museum (CHM), the Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC), and award-winning History teachers.
What a great opportunity for Mr. Kuchyt and our Social Studies students of Oak Lawn!
