Rembrandt, Educational Standards, and Policy
Smith, Ralph A.
Arts Education Policy Review, v109 n5 p3-8 May-Jun 2008
The author describes an ongoing National Endowment for the Humanities project that is devoted to building multiple competences by studying Rembrandt and seventeenth century Dutch culture. Its uniqueness consists in its designing of a state-of-the-art Web site that interrelates the humanities, social studies, visual arts, and technology. A major goal of the project's pedagogy is the development of standards-based instructional strategies that are informed by the national standards of the social studies and visual arts. Informing this effort is a recollection of the national standards movement and an assessment of its strengths and limitations. Policy relevance consists in avoiding the miscues of the standards movement. (Contains 16 notes.)
