Khan Academy: Romanticism

This resource from the Khan Academy explores 19th century Romanticism - a movement known for encapsulating "the spectrum and intensity of human emotion." Its comprehensive lessons may be of interest to educators looking to teach a unit on Romanticism, or curious readers looking to learn independently. Users will likely want to begin with the Romanticism - an Introduction section, which includes the essay "A beginner's guide to Romanticism," by Dr. Beth Harris and Dr. Steven Zucker that provides context on the who, what, where, and when of the cultural movement. From there, the unit is broken down geographically into lessons on France, Spain, England (further divided into two periods: first Blake and Fuseli, and then Constable, Turner, Martin), and Germany. Each lesson includes text, images, and videos that highlight important concepts and key contributors who brought "emotionally expressive art," to the forefront of changing societies. Units also include mid-lesson practice questions that provide a good check-in for learners. The Romanticism lesson plan concludes with a 13-question test on all of the sections. Khan Academy is a nonprofit that seeks "to provide a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere."
