There have been so many great contributions these past few weeks that I
would have liked to respond to them individually. However, it is such a
busy time of the school year that this has been impossible. I would
like to express my thanks to many of you on the listserv who have
provided examples of resources and links connected to the various topics
discussed under the subject of BEAUTY.
As an English and social studies teacher, it is sometimes difficult to
find just the right sources to make the integration of art into the
curriculum easy for myself and my students to grasp, as well as
enjoyable to experience. I work very hard at improving my lessons.
Lately, I find myself downloading many of the e-mails, bringing them to
school and attaching them to units of study. This information has given
me ideas to enhance lessons and to create new activities. The links
relating to architecture and lessons on art have been interesting; they
have prompted opportunities to extend or provide a new slants on
projects my students will be completing. I have also enjoyed the
numerous strategies suggested on cave art. As always the recommended
references are useful. This dialogue has been beneficial for lesson
ideas and the concept of "thinking about art and beauty" has been very
stimulating.
Thank you! Thank you--Keep the ideas flowing!
