Teaching History Through Art

Here's a good clip showing how to incorporate art into social studies from the Teaching Channel.

Teacher David Cooper gets his students to first write down what they see, not what they can infer. Then, he asks them to "wonder" or ask questions about what they see. Next, he asks them to think about answers to their questions. And, finally, he asks students to make guesses about their image. 

Cooper calls the system "see, wonder, and think."
