Studying the material CHANGE keeps jingling in my mind. Change
introduced into the parfleshe by paint from the Spainish (another place)
Change occuring in the life of the young men being iniated by the bison
drawings. Finding our place is not a static undertaking. Art can help
us find our place and adapt to the changes occuring in that place
constantly. This is a deep subject.
As a former elementary classroom teacher I see uses for this as a year
long intergrated curriculum. Everything could fit under this umbrella
and there is room for students to go in many direction in their
individual learning. it would be an exciting year.
But alas I have classes for a hour long instead of year long. I am a
docent at a Scottsdale, Arizona Museum. It would be great if I could
tour a class that had been using this curriculum. The students could
chooose an art work and share it with the group using the icons and
their key questions. Great discussions should arise out of this
activity. We have an exhibit coming in this week about the waterways of
the area. I'll try and work something out using this theme.
I'm annxious to hear what others think of this curriculum.
