World cup fashion challenge - can you guess the kit?

Football fashion – who and what will the teams be wearing? One of the first things that comes to mind when football kits are mentioned these days is the staggering amount of money they can generate for football clubs, both from the merchandising side and from the corporate sponsorship side.

There are a series of critical studies starters, as well as lesson tasks and plenary activities. There is a link to a resource on YouTube, which supports the teaching of acrylic painting techniques. This is not definitive and would need to be adapted for you needs and situation.

Basic Drawing Skills - Scheme of Work - Knowledge Rich Curriculum

Basic Drawing Skills - Scheme of Work - Knowledge Rich Curriculum

Year 7 - Term 1 - Basic Drawing Skills Scheme of Work / Practice Makes Permanent (Literacy Bank) / Assessment and Feedback Materials This resource has been developed in response to the Knowledge Rich Curriculum advocated by teachers, researchers and administrators who have inspired the Free School Movement. It is an attempt to put into practice a fun and engaging Knowledge Rich Curriculum. Traditionally Art is seen purely as an outlet for creativity and expression. However, there is a danger in classrooms of Art not being taken seriously as an academic subject. Without knowledge as the foundation of everything we do in Art, students will lack the ability to be able to draw or realise their creative ideas or designs. Students will be unable to evaluate, critique or learn from other artists effectively . If you want to know more about this movement then I recommend researching the work of Andrew Old, Tom Bennett, Daisy Cristodoulou, Doug Lemov, Robert Peal, Jonathan Simons, Katherine Birbalsingh or James O’Shaughnessy.

Art & Design GCSE student assessment booklet

Art & Design GCSE student assessment booklet

A great resource to support student in becoming more independent and taking responsibility for their projects. 23 pages which can be photocopied into a booklet, giving students all they need to understand the structure of the course, assessment and asking questions to help improve their independence. The booklet is created in Powerpoint so can be easily adapted to suit your own course structure and marking. And slide can be projected onto a white board as part of class teaching. Students record feedback into the booklet so they have their own record of what they need to do to develop. I have found that having students write this in themselves (copying from notes stapled into their sketchbooks) has really helped them to take ownership of the guidance - not just read and forget. Teachers can use the booklet to complete interim assessment of coursework units and ask students to do their own self assessments on the sheets included. The booklet provides a comprehensive approach to assessment of the GCSE course and students tend to treat this more seriously as they can see from the outset of the course how and when they will be assessed and the impact this will have on their eventual grade.

Gustav Klimt artist research & analysis worksheet

Gustav Klimt artist research & analysis worksheet

A two page PDF resource (can be photocopied back to back and laminated for repeated use) on the artist Gustav Klimt. Can be used as a sub lesson during a relevant project (colour, pattern, abstraction, portraiture, Modern Art …), an extension activity, independent study, or as a whole class task. Students are asked to read the information about the artist then answer questions, then show their visual understanding through the identification of motifs in the work. They then create their own practical response to Klimt’s art. The lesson requires minimal materials and can be carried out in a non-specialist classroom. A great introduction to an important 20th century artist whose work is inspiring and engaging for young people.

Literacy : Awesome Adjectives (Display)

**Literacy is a key ingredient to teaching that you expect to find in any classroom. The ‘Awesome Adjectives’ display is a bright and colourful resource that can be used in any subject area to support students with high level pieces of writing. ** This giant ‘describing words’ wall is great for students to refer to whenever they have to complete written analysis tasks. After a class discussion about the meanings of some of the describing words, students can start using them regularly in their writing - leading to the use of high level vocabulary. Print each page on A3 paper to create your display!

www.school-of-thought.co.uk

As a Fine Art and English post graduate of Liverpool Hope University I have developed an educational website that focuses on Learning & Teaching methodology. Its main aim is to develop and create independent learning and thinking, which can be used across many educational settings such as: Schools, Colleges, Universities, Adult Education and other educational settings. My approach has been to develop a more inclusive and holistic approach to learning when acquiring knowledge. For example, as an innovative learning practitioner, I have created digital resources that build on technical, practical and theoretical awareness and attainment ability; plus I have designed concepts geared towards expanding cognitive learning or thought strategies, that are specifically focused on analysis, both with research and the development towards personal concepts or ideas. The website offers a broad range of materials which highlights various areas of practical and critical theoretical concepts which include cognitive skills relating to Art and Design. The main aim of School of Thought is to bring together the often disparate worlds of Art Theory and Art Practical, enabling the learner to make much more informed outcomes, whatever their theme or topic may be. Using the creative thinking skills that these learning resources provide, as well as the practical, technical and critical theory recorded workshops, the learner is able to generate a wider range of outcomes and importantly to be able to discuss them using in-depth terminology. The main objective and purpose is to develop and create independent learning, thinking and a personal response towards creative outcomes. Ultimately, it is to enhance the experience of independent learning and to create a personal response towards progression between the key stages of development.
