I know the elementary school where my own kids went is doing that but it was
after my kids were through. They had parents that taught art history and did
projects with the kids. They also had artist's in residence there and people
who did presentations related to a topic. It really seemed to make a
difference. I was paid to do art related to American History called "Walk
Through History" with the 5th grades. We did all sorts of art related to that
time area and then had a culmination of an enactment where the kids came in
costumes, research and became someone in the times, with painted backdrops and
a "trade" to show the younger kids. It was wonderful ! Gail
