Dear Colleagues, I just 'discovered' this fantastic online art history multi-media collaborative textbook website: http://smarthistory.org created by Beth Harris and Steven Zucker Curriki.org wrote: Rating: Exemplary. This is an incredible resource for any art history teacher or any teacher who integrates the study of art into their subject area. Created, in part, as a way to replace expensive textbooks and study art in a non-text based medium, this website has videos, timelines, articles, podcasts, and so much more to increase engagement and understanding. The website is well-organized and full of information to help both students and teachers as they explore the role that art has played throughout history. 7/31/09 ************ AND They Are Seeking Contributors of images (via Flickr?) and text materials, etc. I already joined and contributed... enuf sed by me, "I'm just an excitable boy"...
