AHTR adaptable lesson plans in art history http://arthistoryteachingresources.org/lessons/art-since-1950-part-ii/

This lesson plan, which includes suggested readings, activities, and slide deck, focuses on influential art movements that have developed since the mid-1960s. This lesson is not comprehensive, but rather emphasizes key practices that emerged in the 1960s and 1970s and continue to inform creative production today. It considers the motivations that led to the dematerialization of the traditional art object and gave rise to practices of conceptualism, performance, institutional critique, and postmodernism in the late twentieth century.
