Class Experience

US Grade 7 - 10

Students will learn about specific locations, buildings, and statues, including ancient and modern structures. Many things have been created in the last 2000 years and students will learn about some of the most famous and recognizable that are found in the Americas. Students will learn about eleven locations in the Americas that are important for Ancient and Modern cultures but not about these cultures themselves. Each of these places is individually important and as a class, we will decide which seven are the most important, creating their own list of seven wonders.
I have degrees in Art History, Anthropology, and Indigenous studies and teach about many of these sights in my college Art History classes. I am a fluent Arapaho speaker and much of my research has focused on the Indigenous peoples of the Americas. I have studied and published on the Moche people of Peru and on the Maya of the Yucatan. This class takes an artistic approach focusing on the architecture and creation of structures rather than a cultural understanding of these peoples.
