I also would like a new approach to teaching art history right now I have
some of my classes choose artists from a list I supply and they have to
research and turn in a paper on that artists. ut it is alot of extra
reading for me. I woudl like to come up with some sort of qustionaire or
form they could fill out , but then you have the cheaters that copy info.
maybe and art assignment in the artist style. Any good solutions out there.

Subject: [teacherartexchange] Art history focus
As I take a breath and contemplate my teaching over this glorious summer
break, I am thinking of teaching units each month on art history. I was
thinking of teaching a period/movement each month (basic for K-5 graders).
Does anyone teach in this style? Do you have your classes doing all similar
projects at the same time? I am thinking that it might streamline my
teaching and I would be able to create the atmosphere in my room each month
with bulletin boards, etc.
Looking forward to your thoughts.
