  • 11. Final Thoughts
    I am excited to teach this unit to my students during the school year. I feel the use of art will enhance their learning by providing interest and enjoyment to the lessons. Students will learn about themselves and others through the artistic elements of the unit, thus strengthening their understanding of people and emotions.
