Research in both Taiwan and the West indicates that teaching processes and evaluation in most venues of education are controlled scientifically, making it difficult for teachers to develop their own art of teaching. This paper takes this problem as a starting point and employs literature analysis to study the art of teaching and image materials.Three aspects of the art of teaching are considered—(1)Maintaining faith in teaching as art.(2)Employing questions to realize teaching characterized by rationality and sensibility. (3)Creating teaching scenarios conducive to imagination. As to image materials, it is suggested that teachers use practical knowledge and transform it into theories to be employed in teaching venues. Image mate-rials in Taiwan history textbooks (the Han-Lin Version) currently used in ele-mentary schools are utilized to illustrate the art and application of employing images.
