Using the Judy Chicago Art Education Collection with High School Students in the Classroom:
I choose to center the class discussions and visual focus on Judy Chicago’s Holocaust Project in order to facilitate dialogue among issues relevant to a diverse group of high school students.

Using the Judy Chicago Art Collection in the University Classroom
Possibilities include: Using the on-line website, going through the Chicago archived boxes, engaging in the Dialogue Portal questions, and viewing the videos online can open many directions for discussion. What is Feminist Art? Can men partake within the dialogue? How does this effect our everyday life?
- Leslie Sotomayor used the Special Collections archive and the embedded videos with her class, assigning students to continue researching the Collection and to choose one piece to write a critical analysis/reflection of the feminist art piece, bridging connections from Judy Chicago’s art pieces to the present.
