This lesson is meant as an introductory lesson into art history or as a follow-up lesson to a semester of art history. Art history is such a broad topic that I felt that my students weren't really grasping it in a "real" sense. They could answer test questions but as far as really putting things into context, I thought they were still weak.
This lesson is written to last two days but could easily be stretched to a week or two. I had to keep it short because computer lab time is almost impossible to get at my school.
1. Students pick a partner to work with.
2. Hand out worksheet, 1 per person.
3. Each student will have to collect facts for three art movements so each set of partners will have a total of 6 when done. (If using the lesson for a week you could easily do more than 6.)
4. Worksheets should take all class period to finish and it includes website for them to use to find material.
1. Student work with partners. You can either have them work alone to make their three art eras slides or you can have them share a computer and do all 6 together.
2. Students use the provided Power Point template slide show which includes web links and two possible examples that they can use. I'm allowing my students to create their own if they want!
All in all, this is pretty straight forward... worksheet on day one and PowerPoint on day 2.
