No visit to Paris would be complete without spending time with its collection of world-famous art. Whether you meander through the corridors of the Louvre or spend the afternoon in the galleries of the Musee d’Orsay, you encounter scenes from France’s past. As part of their study of France in the Long 19th century, students will create a dossier as they become a docent on a piece of art. Encourage students to explore connections, if any, between their art work and expressions of faith, Catholic teaching, or church history. The attached resource includes a list of artwork/architecture, instructions for students, and a proposed implementation plan for teachers.
While designed for a history class, this resource could also be used as an enrichment unit for students studying French.
