Art & History: Interconnected: What did Michelangelo have to do with the Reformation? How did the Baroque period send the Pilgrims high-tailing it to the New World? Nothing happens in a vacuum. History affects art, and sometimes, art affects history. This course explores how world events have impacted art and how different artists communicate their message through their art.
Discovering Art History helps students learn to group paintings or other artwork by style, subject, or artist and introduces several different careers in the field of art. Students will learn about various styles and artists and have a chance to practice each style learned. Numerous art-related books available through many libraries are also suggested to enhance learning.
United States History: Exploration to the Present Day is not about memorizing dates and facts; it is about understanding history and our place in it. Students develop critical thinking skills along with writing and research skills as they dive deeply into history with reading assignments (including numerous selections drawn from primary sources), note taking, research papers, and activities. Both one-year and two-year options are available. Both options cover the same material. The two-year option covers the topics much more deeply and also includes reading several novels that can help students better understand the time periods and events being studied.
Writing On This Day in History is a fun way to combine writing with history. Each day of the year will feature multiple prompts for your students to choose from that will require historical research and encourage students to make history real by answering questions about their own thoughts and opinions about what they have learned.
