1. Lesson Plan Focus

In the 1800s, the arts were dominated by two very different movements. Reacting against the rationalism of the Enlightenment, the romantic movement embraced vibrant emotions, heroism, and glorification of the past. Realism, meanwhile, emerged as an attempt to show the harsh realities of the real world. In the visual arts, impressionists and post-impressionists presented their own views of the world.

2. In-class Instruct

Today’s group activities are for the purpose of creating a festival that celebrates the arts of the 1800s.
Each group will assume responsibility for one art genre.
Romantic literature, art, and/or music
Realistic literature or art
Women’s literature

Each group should write a general introduction for the genre that they will present. Also, each item in their collection should be preceded with an oral introduction.

3. Close
Students should write responses:
Which of the artists, writers, and musicians presented in the festival affected me most? Why?

1. Lesson Plan Focus

During the 1800s, wealthy industrialists and the old nobility comprised the upper class. The influential middle class consisted of professionals, shop owners, and office workers. Peasants and industrial workers made up the lower class. A strict code of behavior guided middle-class life. Women, meanwhile, struggled to gain political and economic rights. During this era, scientific advances challenged traditional beliefs.

b) Write editorials defending or opposing women’s efforts at social reform;
c) Write articles about the many changes taking place in education;
d) Debate the issues between science and religion.

Each group may read their articles aloud to the class.
