More than at any other time in history, images dominate our lives. Instructors need the resources to teach students how to find visual media, interpret its meaning, evaluate its sources, use it effectively, and explain the ethical, legal, social, and economic issues surrounding its creation and use.

Join Artstor’s User Services team and your fellow instructors on Twitter to share your experiences, successes, and challenges—and your questions—on teaching Visual Literacy.

Among the questions up for discussion will be:

  • What place does visual literacy have in your curriculum?
  • Which departments teach it?
  • What resources do you use?

Follow and participate with @ArtstorHelp on Tuesday, February 9, 1-2 PM EST (10-11 AM PST) using the hashtag #artstorchat

Creating Your Best AP® Art History Syllabus Ever
9:00-10:15 AM, Hilton room 415B
As we prepare our AP® Art History teaching practice to fit a new curriculum framework, designing a dynamic syllabus is the key to a great year. Using the syllabus guidelines established by the College Board, teachers can become chief curators in their classroom, creating a vibrant learning environment of inquiry and discovery. We will explore curating online content that links old favorites to new material in the curriculum. Teachers will draw connections that will enable them to make classroom preparation a creative experience. New pathways to understanding can be charted by drawing on thematic, cross-cultural, and formal relationships in your syllabus. Participants will emerge from this session with ways to create a syllabus to both meet the requirements of the new curriculum and guide students in an engaging learning environment.

Reading Visual Primary Sources in AP® European History (with Paul R. Deslandes, University of Vermont)
2:45-4:00 PM, Hilton room 404
Strong, historically contextualized visual literacy skills can be key to student success in AP® European History. In this session, participants will explore ways to meaningfully integrate the close reading of paintings, prints, cartoons, posters, and photographs into classroom activities. The activities will help prepare students to successfully address exam questions and craft essays from prompts that include visual documents.
