What you'll learn in this art history class:

This institute will address issues related to beginning, teaching, and maintaining a successful AP Art History course. We will discuss the recent directions in teaching AP Art History, the nature of the AP Art History exam, and the ways the exam is shaping the course. We will be exploring both strategies for teaching works of art within their historical perspective and integrating works of art from beyond the European tradition as these issues continue to be emphasized in the most recent exams.

The focus of the week will include developing an AP course that really works for students-a course that not only engages young people in the rich discipline of art history, but also gives them the academic skills and strategies they need to be successful in it. Included in the institute's goals is providing a setting in which participants can exchange ideas, discover new strategies, and obtain materials to support their work in the classroom while having an experience that fosters renewed energy and enthusiasm for teaching.

Our week will provide the time and space for teachers to learn from one another as well as to experience the richness provided by the great city of Chicago. We will visit the Art Institute of Chicago as a group and plan optional activities as well. Possible visits are to Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House, The Oriental Institute, The Museum of Contemporary Art, and walking tours of the city to look at developments in 20th century architecture. For activities other than the Art Institute, participants will be responsible for admissions and transportation costs.
