AbstractThe definition of discipline-based art education presented in this thesis includes all domains of art learning and practice: art history, art criticism, art production, and aesthetics. The study develops a series of art history lessons for adolescents at the junior high and high school level. Activities are designed to present instructional strategies appropriate to the educational needs and concerns of these groups of students. These lessons primarily focus on art history, and art criticism as a means for approaching studio production concepts. One instructional unit includes a day-by-day description of art history learning activities covering a period of 10 days, or two regular school weeks. Also included is a description of the order in which the art history, art criticism and production activities occur for each lesson. Specifics regarding media, materials, artists to be studied, styles, reproductions and the vocabulary terms and images to be used for each day are also included.
