The Art of Violence

Violence and human suffering, as represented in art and film, are the focus of an investigation of the power of visual images and the moral implications of such representations. Class members examine “Guernica,” Pablo Picasso’s massive mural, read David Carr’s article, “Stalking Oscar, With Carnage and Mayhem,” and examine other artistic responses to violence. Individuals then create their own evocative work of art in response to a news article on violence or disasters.

I often turn to lesson planet when I am having difficulty coming up with a creative way to present science content. I get a lot of great ideas from the database of lessons available. I have yet to search a topic and not find many quality lessons.
