One resource I have used is Revolutions of the Wheel. It covers the beginning of contemporary ceramic history. Each segment is 20 minutes and if you purchase the video it comes with a synopsis and questions. However, it is on YouTube and you could come up with your own questions. It's a bit dry but informative. My students love learning about George Ohr and I show them a piece of Antiques Road Show to give them an idea of how art can appreciate.
I am struggling for relevant hands on ideas that are engaging and meaningful. Sketchbooks have been my go to. My students do not have funds to purchase or have many materials on hand.
I appreciate the shared info and I have new ideas.
