A two-lesson mini scheme to celebrate LGBT history month: a research lesson on one of 10 artists, followed by a lesson to present and give feedback.
The structure of the lesson is quite straight forward and resources are provided (ppt to go through the lesson tasks and handout sheets on the 10 artists). Computers will be needed and a projector/interactive whiteboard for the student presentations back the class. Students work in groups of about 3 for this task.
Timings can be adapted to suit the length of your lessons, and the project could be extended to involve students making their own practical response to their artist.
Students learn about a rich variety of LGBT artists through the research and presentations, as well as developing artist research and group work skills.
A lesson that puts the emphasis on the students: researching, presenting and then giving peer feedback.
Plus handouts on the artists can be used as posters for classroom display!
The display is up and looks great! Got told to get something up for LGBT history month, so had a quick search. This is perfect. Thanks AMIMAMIM. Sorted me out for a wicked set of posters for my display. Really looking forward to delivering the lesson plan....looks wicked too. Why didn't you do something for Black History Month??? NEXT TIME PLEASE.
