This learning scenario introduces art into English Classroom. Students will learn about life and work of the most famous Croatian female artist, Slava Raškaj.
In every country and every culture, there are artists who are considered the landmarks of their time and of many generations ahead. This scenario can be adapted and used to teach students of different age and interests about any other artist from any other region and artistic period.
Apart from that, the scenario gives insight into the position of women artists in the society at the turn of the 19th to 20th century.
Furthermore, since the artist was deaf from her early childhood, students also learn about the position of handicapped people at that time and compare it to today’s situation.
In order to fulfil their tasks, students are encouraged to use their ICT skills as well as to enhance their critical thinking skills in selecting the information.
