Time: 1 hour 30 minutes.
In this lesson the students will discuss memories in front of the class that they enjoy remembering; along with their speech they will present their interpretation of the memory through art. It will also help with their public speaking skills.
* I want the students to learn how to give a short presentation in front of the classroom.
Materials and Technologies (Teacher and student): Teacher notes for lessons. Students will need comic strip sheets, color pencils, crayons, and markers.
Preparation of the room: I will put the needed comic strip paper on each students desk. If the students have any of their own crayon, color pencils, or markers they will have them on their desk. All of the classroom crayon, color pencils, or markers on a small table in front center of the classroom, along with extra comic strip paper.
- Roy Lichtenstein; comic strip type art
- Maya Lin; demonstration of longstanding memories in art work.
Artmaking medium: color pencils, crayons, and markers. (Not all must be used on project if not desired by student.)
Instruction (Activities and Procedures): Be very specific!!!
Opening: “ Today we will be discussing memories that are special to each of us. We will also be presenting our memories to the class through a short speech, and a comic strip drawing.”
Attention Grabber (Anticipatory set): For an attention grabber I as the teacher would present my own comic strip, and present a fond memory of my own. This memory would be one that is possibly embarrassing or funny so I could loosen the class up about presenting their own memories.
Tap into prior knowledge: I can ask if any of them have ever had to speak in front of a crowd. How did they feel? Did they enjoy? Or if they didn’t, why?
Introduction of artist: For Roy Lichtenstein I will tell about his part in Pop Art. I will show them “Masterpiece” It shows...
