Dignity of Work - Teacher's Guide

Dignity of Work
August 11, 2008   The Dignity of Work Teacher's Guide
[The posting begins:]  "The dignity of hard work was and still is a part of the Texas mentality. It is prevalent in the history of Texas, the culture of Texans, and the art that represents the people of Texas. Many works of early Texas art preserve the lives and the daily activities of the people they represent. These works record details of the clothing, daily chores, and special events in their lives. Work is important not only as a contribution to both family and community, but also as a form of self-worth and a source of self-esteem. This unit uses the theme of work to explore the role of hard work in settling the Texas frontier, and the value of work in the Great Depression."
This project was created by the North Texas Institute for Educators on the Visual Arts (NTIEVA).
