The Teaching Materials: Guggenheim Museum site offers educator resources that spark historical thinking through art. The resources include “Teaching Modern and Contemporary Asian Art” with a focus on social activist and artist Ai Wei-Wei. This fits well in a unit on China’s post–Mao and post–Tiananmen Square massacre years. A video on this topic for social science and history educators helps direct viewers to resources, such as guided discussion and classroom activities. This interdisciplinary approach helps spark student understanding of historical events and current concerns.
