Abstract

This study provided a curriculum for teaching art history to seventh and eighth grade students based on the principles of discipline-based art education (DBAE). The student included historical facts, descriptions and the application of DBAE. The curriculum included a series of lesson plans which contained objectives, audio visual lists, and student expectations and evaluations. Each lesson also contained questions, or statements in the four domains of DBAE: art history, art criticism, art aesthetics and art production. The lessons represented structured, sequential learning as required by DBAE philosophy. The lessons were written according to the junior high level of needs and interests.
