The concentration lesson I wrote is one that will benefit my online Advanced Placement(AP) Studio Art students. In the past these students chose their concentration topics in isolationand wrote the commentary that accompanies their e-portfolios after the artwork was complete.They were not provided with opportunities to work with their peers to test their concentrationideas but were left on their own to reflect on past work and discover a focus independently.Students were required to share their topics in a discussion forum but often resisted thisrequirement. I can now see how this expectation was threatening and meaningless, as studentshad no opportunity to share ideas in stages and receive feedback prior to identifying their finaltopic. By asking students to work with a partner before presenting ideas to the class they haveopportunity to gain confidence that their chosen topic is one that is suitable for a concentration.
Some of the resources I included in the online lesson are included in a Moodle course Iwrote including:lists of concentration ideas, best practices, and problematic starts,slide shows featuring each of the portfolios, andsome information about writing the commentary.However the scaffolding to use these resources was not in place. Students were left on their ownto sort through the content and figure out how best to use the information provided.
Working through the lesson tasks allows students to explore content in a purposefulmanner. Collaborating with peers to identify strengths and passions allows students to test theirideas prior to investing time creating portfolio content. Drafting a statement and then beginningtheir concentrations helps ensure a clear focus and contributes to the ability to sustain the focusrequired for success in completing a collection of twelve works centred on a theme or issue.Online Lesson Reflection

Students who write their initial statements before creating any of their visual pieces are atan advantage. Writing this statement serves as a form of goal setting, it encourages reflection,and it allows students to build a strong community of peers that can offer support throughout thecreation of the portfolios. Participation in such a community provides these student artists withan opportunity to participate in an authentic experience similar to the community professionalartists form for the purpose of testing ideas, critiquing one another’s work and providing support.
As students work collaboratively and post ideas, comments, and questions to forums I amable to closely monitor students’ progress at this critical beginning stage. This monitoring allowsme to identify problems and recognize strengths as they are presented rather than addressingstudent challenges after significant time has been invested in creating artwork. In this waystudents have the advantage of experiencing learning in an environment that more closelyresembles apprenticeship learning where they learn alongside their peers but have the input of askilled mentor.
