What resources have you used for setting up a AP Art History Course for your student?  Thinking of using Khan Academy, some Practice Exams, and something that teaches writing for art history.  Has anyone done notebook with this subject?  

 

TIA for sharing your ideas.

Some links to past threads:

AP Art History at home

Any thoughts or leads for AP level home Art History course?

 

I believe the test was redesigned in Fall 02 2015, so here is a thread from more recently:

AP Art History- has anyone taken it before?

You'll find one user who has an approved AP Art History syllabus (from before the redesign, I think).

 

Hope someone who has done it recently chimes in for you.

They totally overhauled it right after dd took AP Art History.  Make sure you look at the college board because I am pretty sure they were going to give an actual list of which pieces could be tested on (this didn't exist before).  We also used an app for the iPad that wasn't cheap ($30) but had the pieces in flashcards.  It was nice.

  They did overhaul it- anyone considering AP Art History should be sure they have the latest version of the requirements.  They do have a list of aprox. 250 works that will be used on the exam.

Thank you for your advice. Does Gardner's correspond with the 250 art works?

 

 

I don't know, I taught the course prior to this revision but Gardner's certainly worked well on the earlier version.  You should be able to find the list of works on AP Central and I think there are copies of Gardner's index on the internet.  The various AP documents also tend to list approved text books and I can't imagine Gardner isn't on the list.

I never actually taught the course but prepared for it twice so looked at both exams. I originally bought a very old used Gardner's and we really liked it. Made it part way through before we discovered we would not be able to find a test location that year. That was the old exam's last year. She ended up doing the Clep Humanities.

 

When the new exam came out dd was super busy but probably had a test location so I researched just in case she found time to do it. It was one of our original goals so I tried to save it. I looked at the approved syllabus selection on CB and picked the one that I thought would work best for us so I would have a framework. It used a different text. Used book again but I really liked this book. I just gave my art history books away a week ago and cannot remember what it was. Fairly sure Gardner's is still an option. I still feel bad we didn't do this exam.

 

The new picture sets are all out there. Easy to access. I believe either quizlet or memrise had some easy to use study sets.
