Re: [teacherartexchange] What are your TOP TEN images kids should know?

What age range are these images for ? That make a real difference.
Actually I am opposed to setting a list of either 10 or 100 important
art historical images students should know. When Getty started to
promote DBAE years ago, they kept asking art educators for a list of
the 100 important images. Most educators I know rebelled at the idea.
Why limit a teachers range when there are an unlimited number of
images to choose from ? If classroom teachers, rather than specialists,
are delivering the curriculum then the list is useful. But then it's
like teaching to the test rather than expanding what should be a
limitless education. Think about it and respond.
                        Woody's Two Cents Worth

I left a classroom with literally hundreds and hundreds of "exemplars"
for my successor to utilize. I hope she continues to add to the c
collection and gives away those she has little use for. Art is too
broad a subject to put limits on.
