Summary

P rovide your students with an introduction to art that is inclusive and emphasizes critical thinking! Henry Sayre's art appreciation text, The World of Art, is an amazing introduction to the world of art. Students with little background in the arts routinely reach out to Henry to share how the text has influenced their lives. This is so meaningful because Henry's inspiration for A World of Artwas his own students. His students wanted to see themselves reflected in their textbook. Henry decided to write an art appreciation textbook that represented all artists, not just the Western canon found at that time in the other texts. He also created a text that fostered critical thinking through looking at, talking about, and questioning works of art for his students. The result was A World of Artand the new seventh edition continues to build on those two themes- coverage of contemporary global art and a strong critical thinking framework throughout the text. This edition includes new ways for students to experience art with the new MyArtsLab, which includes ART 21 videos, Discovering Art simulations, Closer Look tours, and an eText of Writing about Art, also by Henry Sayre. A better teaching and learning experience This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience- for you and your students. Here's how: Personalize Learning- The new MyArtsLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals. Improve Critical Thinking- The author fosters critical thinking skills by integrating critical thinking based on learning objectives, and end-of-the-chapter "The Critical Process" features. Engage Students- The new MyArtsLab Challenge is a fresh take on assessment offering a "game-like" atmosphere for students to master chapter material. Upon successful completion of each level, students unlock works of art to create their own personal gallery to share with their peers. Support Instructors- New MyArtsLab, ClassPrep, Classroom Response System (CRS) In-Class Questions, Instructor's Manual and Test Item File, MyTest, and sample syllabi are available.
