The Quilts of Gee's Bend offer rich opportunities to teach about Art and Art History, Social Studies and Literature for students in elementary, secondary school and college. Members of the Quilts of Gee's Bend in Context group at Auburn University have developed lessons for using these quilts to study, for example, the American Bi-centennial, Color Form artists and or Frederick Douglas’s Fourth of July Speech and much more. 

Use these lessons for your own classes or develop lessons of your own, using pieces and parts of what you find here. Log in on the left-hand-side to access the storehouse of Units organized by subject field or grade level and the template to develop your own Units and lessons based upon the Gee's Bend quilts.
