Foster critical thinking and visual literacy in the Art Appreciation course.

A World of Art, Seventh Edition introduces students to art with an emphasis on critical thinking and visual literacy. Henry Sayre wrote A World of Art because he wanted to use a text in his own course that truly represented all artists, not just the Western canon found at that time in other texts. He also wanted a text that fostered critical thinking by encouraging students to talk about and question works of art. The new seventh edition further strengthens these two key aspects of the program by examining major themes in art and by adding the new MyArtsLab—which provides engaging experiences that personalize, stimulate, and measure learning for each student.

A better teaching and learning experience

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience– for you and your students. Here’s how:

  • Personalize Learning – The new MyArtsLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals.

  • Improve Critical Thinking – The author fosters critical thinking skills by integrating critical thinking based on learning objectives, and end-of-the-chapter “The Critical Process” features.

  • Engage Students – The new MyArtsLab Challenge is a fresh take on assessment offering a “game-like” atmosphere for students to master chapter material. Upon successful completion of each level, students unlock works of art to create their own personal gallery to share with their peers.

  • Support Instructors – New MyArtsLab, ClassPrep, Classroom Response System (CRS) In-Class Questions, Instructor’s Manual and Test Item File, MyTest, and sample syllabi are available.
