Teaching art history has its dangers for a new teacher. At times it seems like a mass of facts, civilizations, artists and cultures. The class notes, daily lesson plans, pacing guide and worksheets help to organize all the essential avenues of study, as well as provide activities that clarify artistic trends and expand student horizons. The Art History teacher knows they have found success when a student displays the ability to synthesize artistic currents into a valid interpretation.
The benchmark of success is a student’s tweet, text, email or post card to their teacher, that reads something like this: “I am standing here in front of the Colosseum in Rome, and I was reminded of you and your great lessons. I just want to tell you how much I appreciated your class”
