Lesson Plan 2: Keeping Up with the PRESENT


While Keeping Up with the Kardashians might be a well-known aspect of our pop culture, it scores only a 2.4/10 via IMBd. Hopefully my attempts in keeping my lesson plans up to date with currently accepted 21st Century Learning practices are more of a hit!

In my original critique lesson on 2-point perspective, I had students critique in their small table groups, select 1 piece to represent the table, and send a representative to hold that piece up for the class, shown below:

Students represent artwork selected for critique

The class then offered oral feedback in terms of quality, technique, and successful elements and principles of art, demonstrated by the artist. While this critique format offers helpful feedback for students, I think it misses an opportunity to engage in greater 21st Century Learning Skills. The main changes to my lesson are the inclusion of multiple forms of digital technology, additional collaboration (through cloud computing), peer assessment, self-assessment, and an extension to the length of class time for the critique. My goal, with these changes, is to better teach the importance of critique, while better promoting 21st century skills.
