I have used a great series called Chinese Art and Architecture from Alarion
Press. They are on the net at

Also, I have borrowed the free materials from The National Gallery of Art.
They will loan them to you. Summer is a good time to set up a timeline and
request the programs you want to borrow so you can have them on time for your
classes. "Thomas Jefferson: Architecture" is a great slide program which you
can adapt to your needs. You can get a free catalog from:

Department of Education Resources
Education Division
National Gallery of Art
4th & Constitution Ave NW
Washington, DC 20565

Also, the National Building Museum has stuff, and there is an Association of
Architects that has educational materials and volunteers who will even come
to your classroom ... I am running short on time, but I bet they have a
web page.

Happy Building!
