Michel....I just read your comments and perhaps I have a solution for your
feelings...I have about 25 artists' pictures and works surrounding my
always. As the grades study them, about 3-4 a year we also refelct on how
they compare to the others they have studied in previous years...and by the
time my 5th graders are learning their last 4 they can review, relate,
connect and contrast all that they have been seeing and learning about for
the last 5 years. so the learning is not disjoint, it all connects. We find
history and the relation of who and what the artist was to the time in
history and today....and to what each one was saying about himself and his
time. During observations....I ALWAYS...do a quick review "around the room"
pointing out different artists and have the kids tell how each may relate in
some way to the one we are studying....it really works....and your curriculum
is completely relevant and connected.....and by doing it that way there is a
lot of retension. robin
