Observing and Responding to North American Art
Students will observe four North American artworks that reference American history and draw conclusions from them. In this assessment, the North American artworks selected reference U.S. history between 1850 and 1940.
Students’ conclusions may be based on their observations of the artworks and any prior knowledge they have of art or history. Their responses will be assessed using a Teacher Scoring Rubric focused on students’ ability to observe and describe content, support these observations with specific examples or evidence in the artwork, and use these skills to communicate their conclusions effectively.
This item has been voluntarily field-tested by Michigan teachers with a non-representative sample of students.
