This is a 'what if' lesson, asking students to use first impressions and then discover if their first impression is the one they would trust when they analyse further information. It can be a verbal activity or a written task, or however you want it.
You can print these as posters or as postcards, just by adjusting the settings on the print page from whole page to multiple.
The Challenge cards work really well with Year 11 when they are struggling to put into words why a piece of work by another artist has inspired them. They can choose their own level of challenge.
This resource can be used with my Schemes of Learning- Literacy and Numeracy are written into the Art Schemes of Learning with Art foci, as well as Assessment data for each task. (Schemes of Learning and Assessment data available soon).
It is worth this just for the Burger! You can adapt and change the pieces, and its really cute. Kids love building their burger of facts. Anyway, there is a great unit of work in here that always builds great skills for students embarking on GCSE Art & Design. It allows for a trip (we do Birmingham Botanical Gardens, but Kew or anywhere decent will do), it allows for Artist research, good recording, and good experimentation. It then develops to allow student to bring something personal to the project (strong AO4) - themselves! I print this Powerpoint as a booklet and give it to them at the start of term. It means we can work through, pick up where we left off, and kids who want to run ahead can do so. I did the hard work, so that you don’t have to! :)
This marksheet allows for each task to be marked to three assessment objectives (like GCSE 1-3, but renamed acronym A R T, for Analysis, research and techniques). Students are marked on this sheet to 5 age expectations, but you can no doubt adjust them to suit. This marksheet fits with all my schemes of work for the entire Year 7. I also have Year 8 and 9 and available, but their marksheets are much more detailed. The other sheets are generated from the marksheets to be stickers to go into the students books. The comments are already added but fit with my current schemes of work, so you may wish to adjust them. You can just mail merge the doc from the A2L page of the marksheet every time you need to give feedback. Easy!
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.
Teach your students (or print the sheet and let them learn by themselves) how to edit one of their drawings in Photoshop to look like Andy Warhol’s work from the Mick Jagger series. This sheet will help students learn how to use tools, layers, and experiment with filters.
There are a total of 11 topics, each with tasks, that feed into the Assessment Objectives and allow students to work independently and discover ideas and themes to progress their learning to the Personal Investigation stage. There are also a series of Sway links so that you can add links to emails or your school webpage, allowing students to access resources from their phones/tablets.
