Flexible organization and a rich AP® instructor resource program

Gateways to Art offers a balanced mix of art forms, history, and themes. Brief, modular chaptersenable teachers to design precisely the syllabus they desire—with the support of unmatched digital teaching and learning resources. Ninety percent of the required images outlined in the AP® Curriculum Framework are included in the Gateways Global Gallery, and the Curriculum Planning and Pacing Guide (CPPG) places each of these images in context with concept maps that compare and contrast artworks at a glance.

An emphasis on visual analysis, teaching students how to analyze formal qualities and context

Throughout the text, students are introduced to new ways of analyzing great works of art. They learn what to consider when encountering a work for the first time—even non-representational works, or those by unknown artists—and discover that there are many ways of viewing.

A diverse, comprehensive art program

The best way to develop visual analysis skills and understand art in context is by seeing the art, and Gateways to Art, Third AP® Edition affords more than 1,800 opportunities to do that. With nearly 900 unique images—plus 900 repeated images that draw connections across chapters—the book consistently engages students in viewing and interpreting art. Moreover, the represented works reflect the diversity in gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, and global regions that today’s students and teachers expect.

A custom-crafted media program

Students learn best with a mix of media that supports various learning styles. With a wealth of videos; adaptive, game-like quizzes in the InQuizitive environment, fully integrated with the ebook; and other tools for self-study created especially for this book, the author-driven media program provides everything instructors and students need for a dynamic teaching and learning experience.
