  • $5.50

An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic, Standards-based Unit on How the Arts Reflect History and Cultural Values People need to know their own history as well as the history of other cultures. Often people think that the only way to understand history and current events is to read history books, read newspapers, and watch the news. This unit refutes this: Instead of examining only history books for historical perspective, this unit uses works of art to help students understand important historical and cultural events.
