Lesson Plan Critique
Overall the author of this art visual lesson did a great job. He followed the curriculum and standards/goals were set. His objected for this lesson was to educate the students on Ancient Egypt, and the properties/techniques of earth clay construction. His lesson plan goes into great detail. He starts by stated around how long this lesson will take. Two days approximately, he gives for each day extensive detail procedures.
He says first day the teacher will introduce the topic of Ancient Egypt and how earth clay cartouche was part of their culture. I will probably add questions during this time frame to keep the students engage and wanting to learn more. I will show them pictures of the some artifacts, this will help the students understand the project they will we working on. The use of books and other resources will be helpful to engage the students in conversation. During this introduction, I will show a finished cartouche so the students can see what it is exceptive. The author says we should spend around ten minutes with the introduction of the history and vocabulary words. If the students have already reviewed the history of Ancient Egypt then it is possible to do this within ten minutes but if not you need approximately a good fifteen minutes to give out information. Even though you might only have ten minutes we have to make sure that throughout the time they are working on their project, as a teacher we are giving them and making them reflect on what they are learning.
After the introduction he continues to go onto the Part one step procedures. What I like about his lesson plan is that he goes into extensive details. He starts of by stating the first step which is doing your Egyptian hieroglyphic name. He says that the teacher should pass out handouts that show the symbol and that he should have his name done. I think is better if he goes over doing his name on the board...
