Classroom Considerations

  • Make sure to check out all the tabs, especially the Artworks and Artists and See and Compare tabs, for supporting materials to build and enrich your lesson
Pros

  • Comes with step-by-step instructions and a list of materials
  • Includes a rubric, a glossary, and images to browse
Cons

  • While images are included, they are relatively small (even when zoomed in); you'll likely want to create your own presentation so that learners can see all the details
