welcome to ah3000 Welcome to the Level 3 Art History (AH3000) course offered by Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu.

OVERVIEW OF AH3000 AH3000 covers one subject area for NCEA Level 3 Art History: Late Renaissance and Mannerism. You will be introduced to concepts and analytical tools essential in observing art works and generally useful in many fields. The video accompanying the course focuses on art-historical terms and concepts. This course provides the opportunity to gain 24 Level 3 Art History credits towards achieving NCEA. Of these, 12 credits are internally assessed (across three standards) and 12 credits are externally assessed (across three standards). You will also be offered the opportunity to enter Scholarship in Art History. This course can be endorsed with Merit or Excellence if in a single year if you gain 14 or more credits at Merit and/or Excellence within Level 3 Art History. At least three of these credits must be from externally assessed standards and three from internally assessed standards.

If you have difficulties logging in, please email: helpdesk.otle@tekura.school.nz

organising your study

Plan a regular time to study. Some people learn best from frequent short sessions while others do better with fewer, longer sessions. It is important to have a plan or a timetable and to keep to it. There is a suggested course plan in the back of this guide to help you plan your programme of study. You may wish to consult with your subject teacher to help you decide on your plan. Getting your study underway is very important. Your first return of work should be two to three weeks after you received your initial work. If you have any issues returning your work within this time, please contact your subject teacher. For more information on how to study successfully, refer to the Student Guide to Years 11–13 (www.tekura.school.nz).

resources you need

INTERNET ACCESS IS ESSENTIAL – most of the images you look at must be accessed on the internet. You will also need: •• Te Kura booklets (AH3001 and AH3002) only if a non-dual student. •• OTLE PDFs (AH3001–AH3010) •• your own paper for your responses •• access to art books is useful for internal assessment work.

choosing topics and standards

NZQA advises that a one-year course should lead to 18–20 credits. You may only wish to study some topics. For example, you may want to do only internal standards for this course. You should look carefully at the course outline and make your choices. It is important to consider how well this will meet your learning goals (such as gaining enough credits to achieve your NCEA Level 3, or whether you are working towards course endorsement, or meeting the entry requirements for your tertiary course or any future study). To be awarded University Entrance you must have: •• NCEA Level 3 •• Three subjects – at Level 3 or above, made up of: –– 14 credits each, in three approved subjects •• Literacy – 10 credits at Level 2 or above, made up of: –– 5 credits in reading –– 5 credits in writing •• Numeracy – 10 credits at Level 1 or above made up of: –– achievement standards – specified achievement standards available through a range of subjects, or –– unit standards – package of three numeracy unit standards (26623, 26626, 26627 – all three required). To see the list of approved subjects refer to: www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/awards/university-entrance/approved-subjects/ To see the list of standards which count towards University Entrance literacy refer to: www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/awards/university-entrance/literacy-requirementsfor-university-entrance-from-2014/ All Level 3 Art History standards are valid for Literacy: reading. All external Level 3 Art History standards are valid for Literacy: writing. You should discuss your options with your learning advisor and/or your teacher.

self-assessment

Many activities are self-marked. You’ll find an Answer guide in each resource. Use these answers to check your own work and make additions where necessary. You may have different ideas which are also relevant to the question. Self-marking is an important tool in learning at a distance as it gives you instant feedback on how well you understand the ideas, concepts or information that have been covered.

assessment

Students are required to send in their self-marked and teacher-assessed work. Teachers return student work with feedback and advice in preparation for NCEA internal and/or external assessments. Internal assessments for this course include: •• analysing texts about art •• examining the impact of media and processes •• constructing an argument based on research. The detailed criteria for Achievement Standards will be given in the relevant resources. They can also be found by searching the subject and level in the NCEA part of the NZQA website (www. nzqa.govt.nz) and then finding the relevant standard(s). External assessment preparation includes: •• teacher-marked activities •• Te Kura practice examinations.

time commitment

There are 13 topics in this course, including all the internal assessments. Each topic indicates how many study hours it is likely to require. For example, topic AH3002 may take approximately 10 hours of work to complete at the normal pace, representing about two weeks of work at five hours per week. If you are to achieve at Excellence level, it is likely that you will have to study substantially more than the suggested guideline. Before deciding on the pace of learning, read through this Course and assessment guide and ask yourself the following: •• How much time can I set aside for study each week? •• Will I be attempting both externally and internally assessed standards? •• Will I be able to keep a steady pace of five hours of study each week? •• Do I intend to sit the external examination at the end of the year? •• Do I need specific external or internal credits for next year’s study or work?

normal pace of learning

As a guide, expect to do at least five hours work per week in this subject. This means completing three to four topics each term so that you complete the course before the external examination at the end of the school year.

flexible pace of learning

If you have less than a year because you start later or need to finish earlier, you can decide the pace at which you work. You could still complete the whole course by devoting more time and effort to it. Your teacher can ensure that you receive the resources you need in time to do this.

cover sheets

The back cover of the booklet becomes the cover sheet for your work. Detach it, fill it in, sign it and attach it to the front of your work before sending it back to Te Kura. For internal assessments, your supervisor also signs the cover sheet as part of our authenticity requirements. All students are encouraged to submit as much as possible of their work online via the OTLE Dropbox. When work requires authentication, students will follow the instructions provided in OTLE. If you send work by email, sign and scan the cover sheet to accompany your work. In the subject line of an email containing work include your Surname, ID number and topic code. Name emailed documents using the formula e.g. Surname_IDnumber_AH3003

te kura codes

Your course code is: AH3000. AH is the code for Art History and 3 refers to Level 3. ‘AH3001’ refers to a booklet or PDF resource that covers a particular learning topic in the AH3000 course. ‘AH37Y1’ refers to the first assessment for an Achievement Standard (e.g. AS91489) for Art History. ‘AS’ is the code for Achievement Standard.

queries about your work

It is important to contact your teacher if you have any queries about your work. It helps to have your ID number, topic code (for example, AH3001) and the activity or question number when you contact your teacher, but it is not essential.

assessment information standards

AH3000 offers credits from Achievement Standards which count towards NCEA Level 3. Please refer to our Student Guide to National Certificates or Te Kura and New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) websites for more information about National Certificates of Educational Achievement and assessment: •• www.nzqa.govt.nz •• www.tekura.school.nz

internal assessment

AH3000 offers three Achievement Standards that are internally assessed. This means that your teacher sets and marks all assessments that count towards credits gained for these standards. The assessment opportunity for an Achievement Standard is coded ‘Y1’.

external assessment

External assessment means that an external examiner marks your assessment work. This will be through the NZQA examinations at the end of the year.

te kura practice examinations

You should complete the Te Kura practice examinations for any external standards with an end of year examination. It is important that you complete all practice external assessments and examinations. If for some reason, such as illness, you are unable to sit the NZQA examinations at the end of the year you will only be eligible for consideration for a derived grade (compassionate consideration) if you have completed the Te Kura practice examinations.

resubmissions for internal assessments

If you have made mistakes in your standard assessment activity, your teacher may offer you one resubmission opportunity. This means you have made errors that you are capable of discovering and correcting by yourself. A resubmission allows you to correct your errors and improve your result.

authenticity

Authenticity means that students complete and submit work that is their own. When you submit work to Te Kura, you sign an authentication declaration that the work you are submitting is your own work and was done under the required assessment conditions. Where applicable, your supervisor signs to confirm this declaration. When submitting work online via the OTLE Dropbox, if it requires authentication, students must follow the instructions provided in OTLE.

plagiarism

Plagiarism is not accepted. You must not copy directly from texts or the internet. Use your own words or if you use quotes, insert quotation marks and reference the quotation.

assessment information

derived grades (compassionate consideration)

If for any unexpected reason you are not able to sit your end of year examination or to submit final work towards an external standard (portfolios or projects), you may be eligible for a derived grade. Please refer to the Student Guide to National Certificates and contact your teacher or learning advisor as soon as possible to find out more should you feel this is necessary.

appeals

You have the right to query an assessment result if you want further clarification or disagree with the result. If you are still not satisfied, you may appeal. Refer to the Student Guide to National Certificates for more information. You can also appeal any other decisions, procedures or policies about assessments. Contact your teacher or learning advisor if you wish to appeal. Further information and a form that students can use to appeal is available on the Te Kura website in the Student toolkit area (www.tekura.school.nz and go to Student toolkit).

new zealand scholarship

New Zealand Scholarship examinations are designed to extend very high achieving Level 3 NCEA students. Students who wish to enter for the NZ Scholarship examinations must discuss this option with their Te Kura subject teacher. The list of subjects available for NZ Scholarship can be found at: www.nzqa.govt.nz/qualifications-standards/awards/scholarship/scholarship-subjects/

using the internet and otle working with the internet

AH3000 requires you to use the internet all the time. The expense of copyright for images in this course makes it impossible for Te Kura to provide copies of most images. The advantage of working via the internet is that you can see all the images in colour, sometimes enlarge them to see detail and have easy access to other works by the artists you study. Most websites we use allow personal use of images, so you could download images to your own files for ease of use.

accessing web references The booklets you will use contain the names and references for the paintings you will study. The icon beside each named painting will contain a number to cross-reference against the lists of web links.

internet links You will need to access a document of web links on the Te Kura website, through OTLE/Content. You can link to web pages you need directly from this document, or download the document so that it sits on your own system. If a web link is no longer available, check the document on Te Kura website for an updated web link or use Google search for the image. You may find it useful to begin each topic by downloading all the images for that topic onto a CD-Rom so that you can access them offline.

logging into the online learning environment Instructions are given on page 3 of this guide.

working through the booklets

Take time to read the text and look at the works of art. This course aims to increase your knowledge about art as well as your observational skills. Complete each self-marked activity, check the Answer guide and reward yourself with ticks. Add any extra information you may have missed. This is a vital process for the independent learning you do in a correspondence course. Most booklets include teacher-marked activities which your teacher will assess and give feedback on. Spend about half an hour to an hour on each of these.

send in work regularly Send a posting of work every two weeks. Send each posting to your teacher as soon as you have completed it. Regular feedback will help you work towards the achievement standard assessments. Fill out the assessment page at the back of each booklet and send it in with your work. Attach the cover sheet to the front of your work before you mail it. (Cover sheets are the outside back cover of each booklet). Do not send in the whole physical booklet.

internal assessment

Your work for internal achievement standards work will be kept at Te Kura so that it is available to the New Zealand Qualifications Authority for moderation. It will be kept until 31 March of the year following your enrolment. If you wish to have the work returned, you need to request this during March. Any remaining work will be destroyed after 30 April.

external assessment – the examination

All the work you do in the booklets helps to prepare you for the external achievement standards. Some of the teacher-marked exercises are organised in a similar way to the external examination. An internal examination in early September will give you practice towards the external achievement standards. The external examination will be in the second half of November. Scholarship is examined at a similar time in November.

scholarship

The scholarship standard for Art History involves a written examination that is extra to the NCEA Level 3 examination for external achievement standards.

who will sit scholarship? It is expected that the top 5–10 percent of students would attempt Scholarship. You may decide that you wish to attempt it; your Te Kura teacher may suggest that you do so or your school may recommend that you attempt Scholarship.

what will it involve? Hard work! And the opportunity to extend your understanding, your analytical and communication skills. You would need to complete extensive reading beyond the course booklets and practice essays, to be commented on by your teacher. Extra information on the Scholarship exam is available on OTLE.

references books

In preparing assignments and booklets for this course, reference has been made to a wide range of books. A number of these are listed below and at the back of each booklet. You should expand your reading beyond the booklets themselves by seeking relevant books in your art department, school library or public library. There are no set textbooks for the course, but independent reading could use:

general texts:

•• Paoletti & Radke Art in Renaissance Italy is the most useful text for the Italian options. •• Frederick Hartt History of Italian Renaissance Art covers painting, architecture and sculpture. This text also has a number of useful colour reproductions. •• Laurie Schneider Adams Italian Renaissance Art is a modern text covering the content area of this course. Less ‘weighty’ than Hartt; many colour reproductions. •• James Beck Italian Renaissance Painting, although not as detailed, would be useful. •• Peter and Linda Murray The Art of the Renaissance •• Linda Murray The Late Renaissance and Mannerism •• Stemp Secret Language of the Renaissance •• Gombrich Story of Art •• Rosa Maria Letts The Renaissance – a short overview, especially of the fifteenth century •• Partridge, Art of Renaissance Florence, 1400–1600 – excellent for context •• Partridge, The Renaissance in Rome – excellent for context.

for documentary sources:

•• Hall’s Dictionary of Subjects and Symbols in Art – very useful for iconography •• Hall’s History of Ideas and Images in Italian Art •• Holt Documentary History of Art, Vols 1 and 2.

for historical, political and social context to the renaissance: •• Evelyn Welch Art and Society in Italy, 1350–1500 – very useful •• Peter Burke Tradition and Innovation in Renaissance Italy •• Vincent Cronin The Flowering of the Renaissance and The Florentine Renaissance •• Time-Life Library of Art series, including individual volumes on Leonardo, Michelangelo, Titian •• Bruce Cole The Renaissance Artist at Work.

for quick reference:

•• Penguin Dictionary of Art and Artists •• Hale’s Concise Encyclopaedia of the Italian Renaissance.

pronunciation of italian names

A new language and no teacher to say the names for you! In Italian, as in Māori, all syllables are pronounced. The main thing is not to be discouraged by the unfamiliar – try to spell specialist terms and names accurately in all your work. This pronunciation guide will assist with both spelling and familiarity.

the vowels A as A in FATHER (never as in cat) I I as EE in SEEN U as OO in SCHOOL E as AY in SAY (but nearer the French e as in bébé) O as O in POT

the letter c C as in CAT (i.e. the sound of K) before A, O, U C as CH in CHIN before E or I But note that CH before E or I is pronounced as K. CHIARA is pronounced Kee-ah-ra. The rules are the same for the doubled C (CC). BOCCACCIO is pronounced Bok-ka-chee-o

the letter g G as in GAME before A, O, U G as J in JAM before E or I But GH before E or I = G as in GAME GN stands for the sound in ONION – UN-YUN BOLOGNA is pronounced BOL-ON-YA
