RE: Creative ways to present art history

That reminds me of a review activity that was presented in a 6-traits
workshop. You take a passage about any subject, format it so each
sentence has one line, and cut them apart. The students work in groups
to put the passage back in a logical order. Another activity that they
showed us that can be adapted for any subject is also fun and
incorporates writing. The teacher makes a list of facts, non-facts
(false facts), and opinions about a subject. Students work in groups to
organize the bits into the proper categories. Then they individually
write a paragraph using only the facts.

where you belong anymore. Home is always there. It's wherever your
passion takes you" Sheridan to David Babylon 5 "Objects at Rest"

One thing I did once was type up the information about the artist I
wanted the kids to know, then cut the paper up into strips and numbered
them. As the students entered, I handed each student a strip. The stood
in a line, in order and took turns reading the information. I also had a
complete handout for them to put in their folders. Janet ---
