The author of this book asks a good question – why do all the great painters we study have to be men? Answer – they don’t! Content and language integrated learning (CLIL) Definition Content and language integrated learning (CLIL) was originally defined as a pedagogical approach with a dual focus, involving the integration of (second/foreign/target) language study with the study of a subject domain instructed in that language. However, there are many other definitions and terms, with over 40 in use in Europe alone (see e.g. www.clilcompendium.com), all referring to some kind of an approach where both content learning and language learning are being promoted.

The life and reign of English kings and queens visualised Primogeniture is a pain. You can spend all your life waiting to be king or queen and then just have a few years on the throne - or you could be ruling for basically all of your life, which is probably a lot of responsibility. Elizabeth II is under a year away from becoming the longest reigning monarch in the history of England or the United Kingdom - Victoria was on the throne for 63 years - with this in mind we were inspired to look at how other post-Norman conquest rulers have lasted. The gold line shows how many years (in decimals) the monarch reigned and the blue shows the years of their life when they were not the country’s monarch. Although it is not quite as straightforward as it seems.

100 Ideas That Changed Art by Maria Popova From cave paintings to the internet, or how art and cultural ideology shape one another. On the heels of yesterday’s 100 Ideas That Changed Photography comes 100 Ideas That Changed Art (public library) — a succinct account of the most influential developments in the history of art, from cave paintings to the internet, compiled by art historian and broadcaster Michael Bird. From conceptual innovations like negative space (#98), color codes (#33), and street art (#94) to landmarks of communication like making books (#21), propaganda (#12), and handwriting (#24) to ideological developments like “less is more” (#30), protest (#79), and the body as surface (#9), each idea is contextualized in a 500-word essay with key visual examples. Bird writes in the introduction:

The general feeling about Jacopo Robusti is perhaps summed up by Giorgio Vasari in his “Lives.” “He is a great lover of the arts,” says our gossip; “he delights in playing on various musical instruments; he is a very agreeable person, but as far as painting is concerned he has the most capricious hand, and the boldest, most extravagant, and most obstinate brain that ever belonged to painter.

Baroque art, an introduction – Smarthistory Gian Lorenzo Bernini, View to Cathedra Petri (or Chair of St. Peter), 1647-53, gilded bronze, gold, wood, stained glass (Apse of Saint Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City, Rome) (photo: Steven Zucker, CC BY-NC-SA 2.0) Rome: From the “Whore of Babylon” to the resplendent bride of Christ When Martin Luther tacked his 95 theses to the doors of Wittenberg Cathedral in 1517 protesting the Catholic Church’s corruption, he initiated a movement that would transform the religious, political, and artistic landscape of Europe. For the next century, Europe would be in turmoil as new political and religious boundaries were determined, often through bloody military conflicts.

Olaus Magnus’ Carta Marina: Sea monsters on a gorgeous Renaissance map The first time one looks at a color print of Olaus Magnus’ 1539 Carta Marina, the eyes scan the crowded landmass and fix on the creatures in the western part of the map. Larger than the other images and framed by open space, they dominate the chart visually and stir the imagination. To us, the quaint figures rising in the northern waters of Olaus’ map of Scandinavia could be illustrations in a children’s book. Wassily Kandinsky Notebooking Study I’ve had this resource post in my drafts for a while. On one of our many trips to the library this summer, we found an awesome art book that helped spark our idea to look into history through the eyes of art for Raven’s 7th grade transcript. Since Wassily Kandinsky is one of her favorite artists of all time, she chose him for her first artist study of the year. We haven’t really done artist studies in the past, but she has studied various artists in co-op class back in Kansas.
