artworks.

Performance-based Assessment Objectives

1. Students will talk about relationships and experiment with different media to produce
three different art works addressing the contemporary role of the family.
2. Students will collaborate respectfully and work productively in groups to come up with
new definitions of family and how they can be represented visually.
3. Students will collaborate to teach each other different perspectives on family as well
as different art techniques available.

Performance-based Assessment Strategies


(attach assessment documents if applicable)
1. I will assess students oral responses and group discussions for whether they
demonstrate an understanding of the contemporary family and the role it has in visual
media.
2. I will visually assess students collaborative working skills demonstrated through
purposeful conversation and respect.
3. I will visually assess students works to confirm they have attempted different media
experiments and successfully created three different pieces of art.

Academic Language

Vocabulary (define each)

Collaboration- Working with somebody to create or produce arts and crafts.


Experimentation- Trying new things to come up with new solutions to your artwork.
Media- different materials used by artists to create a work of art.
Safe/Brave Space- a space where everyone can feel supported and strong enough to
say what they believe.
Contemporary Family- A modern day support system that looks different for everybody.

Additional Language Demands (specific communication task)

Students will participate mostly in small group discussions lead by themselves, and
facilitated by the teacher. They will have to communicate their self-reflections and media
ideas to their groups. They will also be tasked with changing groups, and sharing
something that they learned in their previous groups. Once their art is made they will also
be asked to open a dialogue on the pieces they all made.

Accommodations for Special Populations


For students with increased frustrations in social settings, I will provide the option to work
alone or with a teacher aid. To avoid singling out the student with needs, I will offer this
option to everyone but I will stress the importance of group work. I will be sure to offer
whatever accommodations necessary for my specific students, and will employ universal
design principles to avoid singling out.
Additional time will be given for any students who need more time with processing and
collaboration
Adapted drawing utensils will be available for students with motor needs
Teacher aids will be present for students who need additional attention
Additional seating will be provided for students who cannot sit in stool

Safety Procedures

The main safety procedure for this lesson will be oriented around the scissors, because
they are the most dangerous item on the materials list. I will tell the students not to run
with the scissors. I will also inform them how to hold and pick up the scissors, as well as
what direction they should cut. Although I should have toxic free materials for the kids, its
important to keep them away from the habit of putting things in their mouths. Another
thing that should be addressed is no stabbing. There should be no impaling of any kind
with the class materials.

Learning Activity

Getting the Classroom Environment Ready

The classroom will be dived into 5 tables with 5 seats at each table. I have left some extra
seats just in case students transfer in the middle of the year, or switch classes. However, to
start off we will have 4 students per table. There will be a rug at the front of the class that I
want the students to sit at to start off the class. The rug will help with an open dialogue, and it
will help me quickly determine which kids can sit next to each other and which students have
a hard time sitting next to eachother. The tables will encourage small group discussions on
the topic of art and the contemporary family. The seat assignments are predetermined, but if I
notice some challenges I will make some changes.

Procedures for the Teaching/Learning Structure (indicate approximate time for each step)
The class will spend approximately 2 days introducing the topic and setting a baseline for
critically conscious dialogue before starting lesson 1.
Day Duration Application Resources

1 5 Start with a short conversation about what the students know


minutes about family, and the art that accompanies this topic.
Questions to ask:
Where do you see family in art?

1 10 self reflection on what family is. They will right their reflections
Minutes in a notebook that will be kept in the class bin. Each class will
have their own bin.

1 20 The students will be watching an episode of Phineas and


Minutes Ferb. I will ask them to take notes about the family, and who
the characters spend time with.
A couple questions that can be used as a guide for this video
are:
- Who do the characters spend their time around?
- Are they considered family?
- Do they like spending time with their friends as much
as spending time with their family?
Additionally, I will be observing the students during the video
and making sure they are paying attention to thecontext of
the questions in the episode.

1 5 The students will get out their notebooks to reflect on the


minutes episode and respond to the questions.
I will walk around the room to make sure the students are on
task.

1 3 Students will put away their notebooks in the classroom bin,


minutes and quietly sit down ready for dismissal.
1 2 I will line up the students for the end of class, so that they can
minutes be ready for their teachers to pick them up.
2 3 minutes We will start the class with a small refresher of the
previous day.
Students will get out their notebooks and get ready to
form groups.

2 2 minutes The students will introduce themselves to their groups


because these groups will be assigned ahead of time. I
will ask them to share one quick fun fact about
themselves.

2 10 minutes Students will be given a prompt to discuss what they


believe about family, and where they see family in an art
perspective. They can freely talk about this, or they can
use their notebook entry from last class as a reference.
They can also talk about different art forms that theyve
tried.
Students will also take notes on one other kids
perspective.

2 5 minutes I will have students in a jigsaw format classroom, where


they switch groups to explain something that they learned
in the previous group. So, they will be teaching each other
about different perspectives. The students will once again
take some notes to share in one more group.

2 5 minutes Once again, the students will share with each other a new
perspective that they learned in the last group.
I will walk around during these group meetings to help
move the dialogue along.

2 5 minutes I will introduce the three projects that the kids will
complete for this lesson.
- One self Portrait
- One Family Portrait
- One family portrait, adding 3 people that you want
to be in your family.
The students will be asked to complete sketches on their
ipads so that they dont waste class materials. Once I
approve the sketches and their media choices, they can
use the mixed media paper in the materials list.
2 10 minutes Students will work on their sketches through an I pad art
app.
I will walk around to make sure that no one is confused,
and to answer any questions that they might have

In the middle of these 10 minutes, I will alert the class of a


10-minute warning for the end of class.

2 5 minutes I will give the final 5-minute warning urging the kids to put
away their notebooks, and iPads, since the class session
will end soon.

After the kids are cleaned up. Ill line them up for their
teachers to come and get them.

3 5 minutes The class will start and I will give the students a quick
reminder of the things they need to complete.
I will also write it on the blackboard, just in case they
forget again.
- One self Portrait
- One Family Portrait
- One family portrait, adding 3 people that you want
to be in your family
They have to finish these on their Ipads first.

3 20 minutes The students will work on their IPads during this time. I
will walk around to make sure the students are working on
their projects. Sometimes they can get distracted by the
other apps that they have. Also, if they have any one on
one questions I can answer them during this time. If any
kids finish early, they can start experimenting with real
materials.

3 10 minutes I will go around to approve all of the finished ipad art. If


they are not done yet, they can keep working. Most
students will be done by this point.

3 5 minutes I will give the final 5-minute warning urging the kids to put
away their notebooks, and iPads, and any other materials
since the class session will end soon.

After the kids are cleaned up. Ill line them up for their
teachers to come and get them.
4 2 minutes Greet the class, and remind them of the projects. Also,
remind them that they can look at the board if they forget.

4 3 minutes Students should get out their Ipads if they are still working
on that. However most the students should be working
with class materials at this point. I will pass that out to
them during this time.

4 30minutes Students will progress through their works and strive to


complete as much as they can. I suspect some kids will
finish faster than others. Towards the middle of this 25-
minute period all the kids should be done with the Ipad
sketches. I will be walking around to help any students
that may be stuck, and also seeing if I can challenge
some students to do a bit more.

4 5 minutes I will announce the 10-minute cleanup routine. I will collect


their works during this time to store in their classrooms art
shelf. At this point students should start to put away their
ipads and other materials.

4 5 minutes I will give the final 5-minute warning urging the kids to put
away their notebooks, and iPads, and any other materials
since the class session will end soon.

After the kids are cleaned up. Ill line them up for their
teachers to come and get them.

5 5 minutes I will greet the class and pass out the projects to all the
students.

5 30 minutes This is the last class to work on the projects. The students
should be done by the end. For those students who are
already done, I will offer a period for them to make a
drawing of whatever they want. I will collect these
drawings to put it on the Family Gallery wall that Ill make
for the class. At this time, I will also go around to help the
students finish up.
5 5 minutes I will announce the 10-minute cleanup routine. I will collect
their works during this time to store in their classrooms art
shelf.

I will organize all the self-portraits so that I can attach


them to a classroom Family Tree that will serve as the
centerpiece for the Family Gallery.

At this point students should start to put away their ipads


and other materials.

5 5 minutes I will give the final 5-minute warning urging the kids to put
away their notebooks, and iPads, and any other materials
since the class session will end soon.

After the kids are cleaned up. Ill line them up for their
teachers to come and get them.
Clean-up Procedures (Room, Materials & Work Storage)

All materials should be put back in their rightful places. I will organize and label bins for all
materials. This will make it easy for the students to get themselves together and cleaned up.
We will always have a 10-minute warning time for clean-up. At 5 minutes, I will really
emphasize that the class is almost over and that they should have all their stuff away ready
for dismissal.

Closure, Review & Anticipation (whats next?)

Closing we will evaluate the art work of the students, and review the good things to take away
from this lesson. The main point of this lesson is to expand the way students think about
family. Hopefully they can reflect on a bigger sense of support than they had before they
entered this lesson. The second and third lessons are building on top of this one, so they work
closely together. The anticipation can come in a form of a question.
Who do you want to be for your family?
This question will have them pondering for a while, and can serve as a great transition to the
next lesson.

Supplemental Activity

If the students want, there will be an option to write a poem for one of their pieces. This could
serve as extra credit if they need it. Also, for students who finish early there will be paper for
drawing whatever they want. They can take this home, or add it to the family art gallery that I
will set up in the room.
