I just finished up my first semester as a Junior High Art teacher. No one was killed. It was an interesting ride for all concerned. On our last day I showed them several short videos on how the world of art history influences film makers to this day. The video below was the most obvious example. They were asked to name at least three of the artists that were paid homage in this film. A majority of them got it right. Enough of them any way to reassure me that some of the stuff I threw stuck.

“It is quaint that people talk of separating dogma from education. Dogma is actually the only thing that cannot be separated from education. It is education. A teacher who is not dogmatic is simply a teacher who is not teaching.”
