northern cities and neighborhoods such as Chicago. 2. Following the discussion used to assess students prior
knowledge, I will explain to the students that this poem is an
example of the cultural legacy of the Great Migration.

Day I: Teaching Point

1. We will begin by discussing following concepts:

Migration
The Great Migration

The Great Migration is the mass migration of blacks out of


the South to the Northeast, Midwest, and West in the early 20th
century.
Migration is the movement of a group of people from one
country, region, or place to another

2. We will begin to discuss the purpose of migration by focusing


on these questions:
o Why do people migrate?
o Why do they go where they go?

3. Next students will be provided a blank United States of


Art Integration Lesson Plan Template 4

America map. Students are expected to make their own map of


the Great Migration.
As we continue to uncover the place at which blacks
migrated to, students are to show this migration of
blacks out of the slave states.
It will be explained to the students that many
blacks headed to cities in the North, such as
Boston, Massachusetts; Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania; Chicago, Illinois; Detroit,
Michigan; Cleveland, Ohio; and New York City,
New York.
Day II:
We will begin day two by looking into artwork regarding the Great
Migration. Students will be introduced to the work of Jacob Lawrence
titled The Migration Series. After I present [some of] the images in
The Migration Series students make use of the think-pair-share
strategy. Students will be given a few minutes to consider the questions
provided below. Students share their thoughts with each other. Students
will then join a larger group or the whole class where they will have
the opportunity to share their thought with the class.
Students will be expected to think-pair-share the following:
How each painting tells a story about the migrants'
experience?
Does each student see the same story? Or do they see
something similar yet different?
What are some components of the artistry? (dark
colors, heavy brush strokes)
1. We will then discuss how Lawrences goal in art was to express
himself through vivid colors, and to tell the stories of his past
and history through his own perspective.
2. As a closing of day two, and formative assessment, students
Art Integration Lesson Plan Template 5

will illustrate their learning on the Graffiti Wall. Students will


jot down facts, write personal opinions, connect their learning
to other areas of study, etc.
Day III: Active Engagement

Task One: Have each student create narratives/journal entry from their
own perspective as if he or she were migrating to an unknown place.

Encourage the students to think about what would be


exciting or scary about this journey, as well as what
was to be gained or left behind.

Have students consider the effect the move would have


on their identity. How would they be different? The
same?

Students will receive feedback on their short narratives


prior to moving on to create the artwork.

Task Two: Students will create a work of art that reflects their journal
on the story of their migration.

Students can create a painting, a collage of images from


magazines and newspapers, or any other type of artistic
expression.

The only requirement is that the students must use multiple (at
least two) different mediums including acrylic paint where they
make use of an observed signature style of heavy brush strokes.

Part III: Closure


1. Presentations
As a way to close out the lesson, students will share their

artwork as well as their short narrative journal entry that goes


along with it. When students are a part of the audience
reviewing the work of their peers they are expected to choose
two of their favorite and describe how the chosen illustrations
tell a story of migration.
2. Final Assessment
The final assessment of the unit will be a summative one. The
students will provide a short response as to describe their
overall learning. To depict their learning, the short response
must include misconceptions and misunderstanding that the
student had prior to lesson and how their learning has
developed from the beginning to now.

This warm up activity would work well to stimulate discussion on topics


that will be covered later as well as eliciting students background
knowledge on the topic of the Great Migration.

Turn and Talk Short Response


This turn and talk strategy allows all students to talk about the content The students will provide a short response as to describe their overall

thoughts and what they have learned about the topic. Because both misconceptions and misunderstanding that the student had prior to

engagement.
Graffiti Wall
For a graffiti wall I will cover a part of a wall with white paper and
encourage students to write or draw what they have learned about the
topic. Students can jot down facts, write personal opinions, connect their
learning to other areas of study, etc. The graffiti wall will gives me a
visual representation of what my students have learned during this unit.
What student prior knowledge will this lesson require/draw upon?
Some prior knowledge that this lessons draws on is the history of African American people in America. Students must be familiar with the slavery
prior to the lesson because this understanding the events of post-slavery, war, and the environment in the South determines if they will be capable
of understanding The Great Migration and why it was happening.

How will you engage students in imagining, exploring, and/or experimenting in this lesson?
Students are engaged in imagining during the engagement phase. The students do not necessarily know exactly what it feel like to migrate to a new place but
they are using the knowledge that they have just recently acquired along with their imagination to depict a story of migration from their perspective. Students
are also engaged in exploring when they are analyzing and questioning the work of Jacob Lawrence from The Migration Series
How will this lesson allow for/encourage students to solve problems in divergent ways?
This lesson encourages students to solve problems in divergent ways by providing them different ways to depict their story. While there were a
few requirements, students were given creative control when it came to artwork for their story of migration.

How will you engage students in routinely reflecting on their learning?


I will engage students in routinely reflecting on their learning by allowing students discuss at the end of the day what theyve learned and provide
them answer to any questions they may have. This daily end of the day group discussion gives the students the opportunity to come in the next
day with a clear understanding on the content presented the day before.

How will you adapt the various aspects of the lesson to differently-abeled students?
Art Integration Lesson Plan Template 8

For students that have trouble reading due to low literacy or visual impairment I provided students with both an audio recording of Langston
Hughess poem as well as a the text to read aloud. For students that have trouble writing when it is time to create the short narrative I could allow
those students to make use of a text-to-speech application. I could provide graphic organizers to students as to visually display the relationships
between facts, concepts or idea.

What opportunities/activities will students be given to revise and improve their understandings and their work?
Students are able to revise and improve their understanding after participating in group discussions. Students are given the opportunity to hear the
knowledge and theories of their peers as well as the teacher which ultimately helps shape their own. Students are able to revise and improve their
work after I come around and check their first draft of their short narrative. Students will get their narratives checked prior to moving on to
construct their piece of artwork as to ensure that they have the opportunity to revise and improve based off of the feedback they receive.
What opportunities/activities will you provide for students to share their learning in this lesson?
Students were presented with two opportunities to share their learning during the lesson, one of which was on day two. Students were given the
opportunity to write upon the Graffiti Wall to jot down facts, write personal opinions, connect their learning to other areas of study, etc. The
second time students were able to share their learning was at the end of the unit when they filled out the final assessment that described the three
misconception they had prior to lesson, how their learning has developed, and any further questions.
