Celebrations of Diversity: A Supplementary Unit for Secondary Art Foundation.
Asay, Diane L.
This resource unit is designed to be integrated into a secondary school art foundation course. The unit is aimed at providing connections between the views and purposes of art and the students' environment. Connections are made between art and world-wide views of art cultures, communities, families, and the individual student. The unit lessons, which follow a discipline-based art education format are: (1) "The Real Me," which focuses on self-portraiture; (2) "Changes and Constants," a comparison of the past and contemporary roles of the family, stressing the diverse nature of families; (3) "Traditions," has students creating a print edition, while defining the varied traditions of their communities; (4) "Symbols of Culture," focuses on sculpture and assemblage as an art form; and (5) "Viewpoints" has students creating a class mural representing a worldwide view of cultures and purposes of art. Student handout sheets, "Aids for Activities," and "Supplemental Materials" conclude the guide. (MM)
