Connecting Classrooms to Communities

This website is a resource for college and high school instructors who are interested in utilizing Atlanta and the Metro Atlanta region as a subject or a case study in their teaching. Our goal is to connect our students to the history and culture of our city. We also hope to connect teachers to one another, across disciplines and institutions. 

Teaching Atlanta is part of the Atlanta Studies network.
