What's The Connection? IV

What's The Connection? IV

A starter to engage the students on entry, looking for clues as to what the connection might be with a difficult fourth image which doesn't quite fit. These starters really make the students look and think and give good opportunities to look across cultures for why artists might choose the subject matter. Suitable for any age group - KS2 KS3 KS4 and KS5, and good for some background knowledge on art history AO1

Male or Female Art - can you tell the difference?

Male or Female Art - can you tell the difference?

A fun starter to engage them as soon as they arrive and a good one to tick the equality and diversity box with opportunities to discuss gender and the way men and women tackle subject matter, challenging stereotypical view points. Really good for generating discussion with A Level and GCSE classes, and I've also used it in PSHE lessons to good effect.

The extended tasks allows for further personal responses to develop again promoting E&D in the students exploring and sharing what they find in term of a top 10 they create.
