Teacher Manual: American Art and Culture

American Art and Culture: Curriculum Resource Guide presents twenty-five works of art from the collections of the Art Institute. The works are divided chronologically and thematically, but works in different media and from different historical periods can be effectively compared. Each work of art is discussed in a short essay, followed by recommended questions and activities for students that emphasize possibilities for interdisciplinary study. Also included are ten sample lessons. (©1995)
