Russian Iconography: Russia's Contribution to the Art of Western Civilization.
Wagstaff, Jeri Lou
This one- to three-week high school unit on Russian iconography was developed as part of a series by the Public Education Religion Studies Center at Wright State University. The unit can be incorporated into a larger unit on Russian literature, art, religion, or history. Four reasons for studying iconography are: 1) it is a splendid Russian art form; 2) it is the most significant Russian contribution to painting; 3) it gives insight into Russian religion and the Russian Orthodox Church; and, 4) it is a good example of religious influence upon art and artists. Generalizations, concepts, and vocabulary are briefly outlined. Thirteen cognitive objectives are identified, such as the student will be able to identify three general subjects of Russian icons. Eight affective objectives are identified, such as students will express a desire to visit the Soviet Union. Several activities are suggested including the viewing of films and discussion groups. Four different forms of evaluation are provided. These include student evaluation of the unit and teacher. A list of reference books, films, and recordings concludes the paper. (Author/BC)
