             A   SUGGESTED        USE    FOR    MATERIALS 
                Preview entire set of materials before using. 
First Class Period 
     Using background information about Aaron Bohrod, introduce the students
to the artist. This brief introduction should allow ample time for discussion
and questions about the artist and his paintings. 
     Select a few of the paintings on the filmstrip and have the students
react 
to and ask questions about them. List the questions the students ask using:
"The Artist's Mother" - frame 5, "Boats and Floats" -
frame 26, "Galloping 
Ghost" - frame 24, and "Elvehjem"-- frames 45-47. Questions
similar to 
the following may be asked: What different colors has he used for the sky?
How does he choose his objects for still life? Does each object stand for
some 
meaning in the still life pictures? Where does he sign his name in his paintings?
Second Class Period 
      View the filmstrip and listen to the tape.
