The beauty and the beasts: animals in paintings and pictures from the Italian Renaissance to the present days (EN-CUR-153)
The learning scenario takes a cross-curricular approach. It enables English teachers to offer their students a CLIL lesson on Art using a second language communication. By the end of the lesson, students will be able to describe the main features of a work of art in English. They’ll also be ready to create a similar one using digital resources and tools. The learning scenario uses a Flipped Classroom approach to introduce Europeana. Students then work in groups to create a final product.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
