Mr. Corey from Meriden CT is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

American Art for American Adolescents!

Help me give my students access to influential American art. Posters in my classroom can be used to incorporate culture into every topic we cover in U.S. History.

My Students

My students are between 10th and 12th grade taking either United States History or Senior Forum which is a current events and civic engagement class. We are in an inner city district and the majority of my students come from low income Hispanic or African American families and have difficulties with language and comprehension. They are ravenous students of cultural history.

Although we study wars, economics, social structures, and historical thinking skills, what really interests my students is the diversity of American culture.

My Project

21st Century students are inundated with images, but decorating our classroom with classic American Art will help them to see the power of an image. Taking time to absorb and understand these paintings will help them to see the past through the eyes of real people.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but these paintings are more than that, they can speak a thousand languages and are part of our shared history.

By displaying and teaching about art in a history class, students can see their part in the long and challenging process of building America. Students will get to observe the art on a large print and in a non-digital format. We will take time during each of the applicable units to analyze these paintings as they fit into the larger picture of American history. Additionally, students will be encouraged to see how images from the present can be used to express ideas and perspectives to future generations.
