Greetings, My name is Theresa Hanna, and I too am one who reads this list
daily but doesn't write often. I would like your opinion regarding a lesson
that I am about to give my high school students. This semester I am
teaching painting 1 and drawing 1, I thought it would be interesting instead
of writing a term paper that they choose and artist of their choice, no
duplicate artists in the same class, and teach the class about the artist
using any info they could find posters, books, information from the
internet, and give us a history lesson then create a lesson for the class to
do (ie create a word search using info of the artist, a small painting or
drawing in the style of the artist etc. Last semester instead of a term
paper they worked with a partner to illustrate and write a childrens book
which they had to read to elementary kids. Our school has elementary,
middle, and high school on the same campus which turned out to be terrific.
Does anyone have any ideas. I am trying to stress art history to kids that
do not want to learn it at all, so I thought what better way for them to
remember an artist than to teach about and artist. Am I on the right
track?????? Help ........... Thank you, Theresa
