Beauty and Truth

The collection is an activity for students in which they interpret and assess a quote ( "Beauty is truth, truth beauty, that is all/ Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."-John Keats, Ode on a Grecian Urn) based on evidence from the pictures (and sometimes relevant information in the text with the resource) in the collection. There is no right answer and it is very much up to interpretation. Goal: Students will be able to assess a claim and present their argument using evidence from visual media. Note: Collection contains artistic nudity that may not be appropriate for all students. Teachers may wish to edit or remove certain resources. Tags: beauty, truth, beautiful, art, culture, lie, elegant, elegance, deception, honesty
