semester long art apprectiation course this year. At the school I teach
it wasn't too popular (a small rural school) I think you would have more
success at a large, urban school. The kids would sign up thinking it was
a traditional art course (even though the course description did not say
> It is an elective and they did not like all the reading and test takingof core classes. I think it could be a big success depending on your
student body, especially if you can teach AP art history. Good Luck!
