College readiness is essential and using academic resources trusted by more than 10,000 institutions in 176 countries helps faculty put students on the path to success. We will show you how to use JSTOR’s innovative tools like Text Analyzer, My Lists, and subject-specific resources like Understanding Shakespeare.

In Artstor you will discover a new interface with tools perfectly geared for the classroom, including teaching resources for Advanced Placement® Art History, European History, and US History courses, as well as easy presentation tools that allow faculty to take students on a virtual field trip to the world’s major heritage sites.

Join us for a webinar demonstrating research practices for novice researchers with the topic of the history of women’s suffrage in the United States from the mid-19th to early 20th century.

In honor of Women’s History Month, we will explore some useful collections alongside the rich content and tools available in both JSTOR and Artstor. We’ll show you how you can build a lesson around primary sources including images, historical documents, and contemporary essays debating universal enfranchisement, then connect them to academic research for context.

This webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, February 27, 2018 11:00 AM – 11:45 AM EST.

AP Annual Conference
July 26-30, 2017
Washington, DC

Dana Howard, Artstor’s Senior Education & Outreach Manager for Secondary Schools, will be leading two sessions alongside fellow experts:

Enhancing Common Skill Sets among Studio and Art History Students
Saturday, July 29th, 10:15–11:30 AM

Dr. Virginia Spivey, Adjunct Professor of Art History, Theory & Criticism at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and Artstor’s Dana Howard will show how art history and studio art instructors can benefit from a process of critique that brings the two practices into focus. In this session, participants will practice using critique as a method of art historical instruction and learn to design frameworks that show art history as an evolving body of knowledge rooted in European tradition and now understood in a global context.

Making Time to Teach: Curate and Organize Content for AP Art History
Saturday, July 29th, 2:30–3:45 PM

Rebecca A. Stone-Danahy, Upper School Visual Arts Educator at Ashley Hall, joins Artstor’s Dana Howard to discuss and demonstrate the process of curating research, images, websites, and resources for instructional use. Participants will learn how to use a variety of organizational tools in Google, Evernote, and Artstor to gather and store teaching content with tips on how to use with any LMS platform.
