AP Meet Smarthistory.org

Smarthistory.org can be an excellent resource and supplemental tool for your studies.

For this homework assignment, I want you to bump around the smarthistory website and kind of explore what is available to you.  As you do so, I would like you to find answers to the following questions.  All answers should come from the smarthistory site.

  1. Find the video on carving jade within the Global Prehistory section.  In that video clip, what ancient form is being carved, and what is the meaning of that form?
  2. According to the entry in the Global Prehistory section, what is the art historical significance of the Apollo 11 stones?
  3. Use the search function on the website to find “classical orders.”  Tell me what the video on the classical orders is about.
  4. Go through the larger website.  Provide for me a url for a portrait that was made during or after the 1500s.
  5. Go through the larger website.  Provide for me a url that is a video for an archeological/architectural site.
  6. Go through the larger website.  Provide for me a url for a page or video that is about a landscape painting.
  7. Lastly, provide for me a url of something you stumbled across on the smarthistory site that was cool, but was not one of the answers used above.

Provide these answers to me via email:  james.elam@killeenisd.orgThis is a formative grade, due Monday, 9/10, by 11:00 p.m.
