About the Exhibit

This exhibit, created exclusively for Eastern Illinois University by Booth Library, provides an historical look at the training of teachers and Normal schools in Illinois, including an overview of school life in Illinois. Programming related to this exhibition will be offered during October 2010, to coincide with the reaccreditation visit of Eastern's teacher certification program by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
