What did David want us to think about Marat?
This highly accessible lesson leads to some really clever thinking by all.
This is best taught as one of two lessons investigating whether David was right about Marat, or was his painting ‘an awful, beautiful lie’? as some now think?
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!
