For Educators - Introduction

The Educators Area of the SIMON SCHAMA'S POWER OF ART Web site was developed in close collaboration with art history educators, museum educators, and art education experts. The lesson plans, interactive games, and classroom materials have been designed to support thoughtful and critical examination of art and art history for high school teachers and students.

NOTE TO EDUCATORS: We strongly encourage educators to use segments from SIMON SCHAMA'S POWER OF ART in the classroom. As always, be sure to preview all video and Web materials to make certain they are appropriate for your students. Of course, you know your students best, so we ask that you use your own discretion. For more information on using video effectively in your classroom, visit the National Teacher Training Institute Web site.
