When I have taught Art History I based the class on Marilyn Stokstad's work and did"readings" for my students.
The publisher has a fantastic web site that complements the book- which I used alot with High School Students.
I also used an ONLINE high school text for much of the readings. (also has cool links.) The online text is pretty
good. But I'll don't remember what it was called.
