AP History Classes Take Trip to Philadelphia Museums
October 26, 2018
Students in the AP Art History, AP European History and AP World History traveled to Philadelphia on Wednesday to visit three famous museums.
The extensive collection of Dr. Barnes included the impressionist works of Renoir, Manet, Gauguin, as well as the post-impressionist works of Cezanne, Seurat, and Van Gogh. Students were given an up-close view of several of these famous works, many of which have been discussed in their AP classes. The Rodin Museum featured additional famous works, including “The Thinker” bronze caste.
The AP World History students had the opportunity to view the special exhibition, Vikings: Beyond the Legend, at the Franklin Institute. Since AP World History extensively covers a global perspective of “ancient” history, the Vikings display was a perfect opportunity to supplement what the class had previously touched on in their curriculum.
The group was accompanied by AP history teacher Miss Cathy Carroll, history teacher Mrs. Victoria Meehan and faculty emeritus Mr. David Smith.
