This fast-paced, extensive course demands your pro-active participation.  Do not fall behind on the weekly assignments!

Although the weekly assignments are posted near the bottom of this page, most of the resources and materials needed to complete the work are located near the top and middle sections of this page. 

You MUST maintain a well organized three ring binder with sectional dividers for all of your work.  I suggest you also have a virtual folder.  You will need both items for reviewing the course work in preparation for the examination in May.
 
Please complete the required reading assignments as instructed.  There are no substitutes for the reading assignments and classwork / homework to ensure your success on the AP exam. 
 
 
                                   Tools
 
Textbook:  Gardner's Art Through the Ages 12th Edition .
 
Handouts:  Several types of worksheets/handouts will be used throughout the course.  Some of the worksheets/handouts are informational, but some do require written responses.  Most will be posted online per the week assigned.  It is your responsibility to make hard copies when required. You MUST maintain a 3 ring binder to keep all of your work for future, periodic assessment and for study prior to the examination in May.  I normally give at least one binder grade during each week grading period.
 

 The  3 RING BINDER   -  Here is a basic flow chart of major art genres.  Use the information on the following handouts to create your flash cards.  These handouts are also helpful study guides for unit tests:
 
22 - Non-Western Art (India, Far East, Africa)    African Art Introduction
23 - Modern & Post-Modern Art
 
 
COMPUTER / Mobile Devices:

You will need access to a computer / mobile device as much of the assignments and resources are online along with handouts and instructional materials.  Project Based Learning activities (PBLs) often require collaboration with your classmates via  Google Drive / Docs / Gmail and other online programs / platforms including, but not limited to, SCHOOLOGY.
