I just found out that I have to teach our woods 3 class next semester. I usually do 1 and 2. the third class focuses on historical furniture styles. We don't have much written curriculum beyond that. The kids study about furniture styles then build something from their favorite style.
I need a crash course in furniture styles, so that I can try to teach about them. Do any of you have any resources you can pass along? Awesome websites, books anything helpful?

Download this Furniture Styles PowerPoint and let me know if it will work for what you want.... and since DivShare has not always worked, e-mail might. It's 24 MB. If that's too large, I can split it into two parts and e-mail it to you. woodshopteacher@cableNOSPAMone.net

I could not get DivShare to let me download this, so let's try this site. I can view it from here but not download it. If you like this, I can split it into two parts and e-mail it.
