Contemporary Chinese Peasant Painting
Conditions of Use:

Rating

This form of painting became popular during the Cultural Revolution in China (1966-1976). Images depicting people's every day lives became a natural focus under the regime of Chairman Mao. Artists in places like Hu County in Shaanxi Province (near Xi'an), where these painting were made, were discovered and became popular. This particular series of Peasant Paintings, by a mature, female artist named Dong, were done in a studio production method.The peasant paintings depict festivals and daily routines: preparing food, doing laundry, traditional parades (lanterns, dragons), animals and fish. Some tell stories with symbolism. This curriculum resource will provide potential lesson topics and areas of discovery and a set of images for teachers of art, Chinese culture & history at elementary, middle and high school levels. The paintings may serve as supplementary visuals for K-8 teachers of science, and geography.

Judgement and Justice: The Life and Diary of William Godwin
Rating

William Godwin (1756-1836), philosophical anarchist, novelist and intellectual, kept a diary from 1788 until a few weeks before his death. The diary has recently been transcribed and edited and is available on the web at: http://godwindiary.bodleian.ox.ac.uk. It offers a hugely detailed if deeply cryptic window on Godwin's literary life, his familial life (as the lover and then husband of Mary Wollstonecraft and the father of Mary Shelley), and his connections into an extraordinary range of literary, political, artistic and theatrical networks over nearly fifty years. Experts from Oxford University discuss the life and times of this famous 18th Century writer.

Context in some pieces of literature make or break the book. Though Of Mice and Men seems easy to read, the basis for the world of broken workers in a the broken world of The Great Depression is alien to the students of today who text, watch TV and drive cars to their High School Class. There are still poor in America, extremely poor, yet the majority of kids today have so much more than what the majority had during the Great Depression. The students' job is to present the daily life of the Depression from a common person’s point of view.

How is psychology influenced by the digitalization of almost everything? What can frequent digital measurements and novel statistical techniques mean for 21st century psychology?

In this tutorial students conduct both an N=1 time-series case study and experiment, measuring some aspects of their daily life, such as mood, food intake, social activities, exercise, attention, alertness, sleep, or anything else they like. The experiment will result in (1) a linear graph depicting the effect of the chosen intervention through time and (2) a network depicting relationships between the chosen variables through time.

With this personal case study and experiment students get some insights into the new possibilities of frequently repeated measurements for studying (individual) human behavior.
