Analyzing Images: Everyday Essential People

In times of crisis, who is considered an essential worker? What jobs are considered essential to keep society functioning? We have searched our collections for historical images to highlight and celebrate those who are necessary to keep society functioning. 

These images may be viewed leisurely, or for a deeper dive, use the questions provided under the "How to Analyze an Image" square. Once you have finished viewing the images, make sure to consider the final reflection questions located in a square at the end of the Learning Lab.

Visualizing Democracy

This Learning Lab complements the National Portrait Gallery's student program, Visualizing Democracy. 

Students will visualize democracy from the colonial era to the 21st century by analyzing portraits of major figures who played a critical role—as government officials, engaged citizens, or both—in creating a democratic society for the United States. Students will investigate how portraiture can convey democratic ideals and how, as a cultural institution housed in a historic building, the National Portrait Gallery has been and continues to be relevant to American democracy.

The Civil War: Examining complicated choices during times of challenge

This playlist on Civil War is designed for self-guided learning with intermittent check-ins for middle school age students. The learning tasks are divided over five days, designed for 30-35 minutes per day, and build on each other. However, students are able to work on this playlist at their own pace. They will engage with primary and secondary sources as well as online exhibitions, videos, and written texts. Students can complete the tasks online by connecting through Google classroom for each formative and summative assessment.

By the end of the week, students will write an original journal entry examining how people make impossible choices during times of hardship, based on examples of individual decisions made by people before and during the American Civil War. 

  • Formative assessments are represented by a chevron (Learning Check Ins and Daily Check Ins).
  • Google Doc versions of all formative and summative assessments are in the tiles immediately after the digital versions.
