This highly engaging lesson uses the story of the murder of Marat to get students to look unlock the messages in David’s famous painting of the murder scene. What did David want us to think about Marat? This highly accessible lesson leads to some really clever thinking by all.
It works just as well as a stand-alone lesson. We have never taught this lesson and not been pleased with the engagement and progress!
