Art Progression of SkillsQuick View

Art Progression of Skills

Compiled for our school - these are the progression of skills through the processes of art. Each half term we create focused teaching on one of these processes. Although inevitably some of these objectives will be met in cross curricular opportunities or other subjects. But we don't rely on that and so use this as a guide.
Debate : Form of art or not?Quick View

Debate : Form of art or not?

The classroom debate is a highly useful tool for a teacher. It provides the students with an excellent opportunity to improve their fluency skills and to extend their vocabulary while, at the same time, discussing about complex contemporary issues and developing the students’ critical thinking skills. If organised carefully, classroom debates are something your students will look forward to. This is a debate about graffiti , a controversial topic but very familiar to the students. This is a B1 - C1 level. The teacher should also be aware that the whole preparation takes no less than 4-5 hours and might also reach the 6 hours, depending on the particular class and level. Here you can find the lesson plans for each session (there are 3 in total) and the accompanying worksheets.

This means that students are being challenged to make decisions and employ a “growth mind-set”, something that is being lost in many schools. The work is purposefully diverse because students have developed ideas in their own original ways. Ideal for use with the AQA and EdExcel specifications, allowing full coverage of the four assessment objectives. Included in this bundle are the following. A thorough unit of study.

This is a stand-alone art lesson that helps to teach students how to draw the correct proportions of the human figure. This is an introduction to figure drawing, which can be used in a bigger scheme of work looking at the human figure, or it can be used as a cover lesson. This lesson can be used with KS3 or KS4 students and can be easily differentiated. It includes 3 main activities (starter - main - plenary) and can be taught by a non-specialist. It has clear learning objectives and an extension. It encourages students to look carefully at the proportions of the human body. I have made this lesson as I was unable to find a quick one-off lesson that was not just focused on drawing. This lesson has different activities to keep students engaged.

Activities to strengthen Art skillsQuick View

Activities to strengthen Art skills

This is a resource I have made from activities I have collected and created in order to strengthen Art skills. Every Art activity a student does is marked according to three assessment objectives: A- Analyse and Record, R- Research and Develop, and T- Try and Text Techniques. When work is returned to the student, they can improve on their weakest area (in DIT time) by doing an activity from the document and marking off which one they have completed on their colour chart. There is an excel markbook to go with this resource, which helps you track student progress to the assessment objectives.
