 GETTING STARTED- A LESSON SAMPLER

 

 

 

AP Art History-GENERAL INFORMATION

 

Jim Henson – room 156

jmhenson@wfisd.net

 

 

Course Goals

  1. To enjoy exploring how and why “historical art” is formally interpreted and understood in many contexts through identification, description, evaluation, and analysis (IDEA)
  2. To investigate the materials, techniques, elements of art, and principles of design employed in making art
  3. To understand how aesthetics are applied to the processes and contexts of those things which are classified as “art” ( link= http://www.iep.utm.edu/aestheti/  )

 

Behavioral Expectations

  1. Because this is a college level class, your classroom etiquette must be beyond reproach.
  2. You must cooperate with your peers and stay focused to be successful.
  3. The consequence of disturbances could result in your dismissal from the class.

 

Grading

  1. Participation grades are based on readings/discussions/journal entries/note-taking/projects, and participation in online, interactive study guides.
  2. Test scores are based on practice quizzes/tests
    1. First attempt- up to 100% credit (without book)
    2. Second attempt- up to 90% credit (open book/or groupwork)
  3. AP Exam
    1. Students are EXPECTED to take the AP Exam to earn their 5.0 grade!
    2. Students who do not prepare to take the AP Exam will be graded on a 4.0 scale (otherwise it is only an “art” appreciation course.)

 

I will provide strategies and information that will prepare you for the AP EXAM; each student is responsible to follow all of the strategies in order to score well on the exam.
