3.2 Plan, structure and


sequence learning
programs: Plan lesson
sequences using
knowledge of student
learning, content and
effective teaching
strategies.

The artefact

Professional
Experience
Two
focussing on
Creative and
Performing
Arts, in
particularly
Art.

This artefact incorporates a range of


professional teaching standards from
standard 3. The lesson is structured to
allow the students to achieve the
learning intention in a timely manner
being scaffolded by the teacher.

The above two lesson plans


allowed myself to plan a lesson
sequence where the students
could also see how their learning
can evolve and continue for
more than one lesson. I was able
to incorporate a range of
teaching strategies as we moved
both in and out of the classroom
(management of students and
clear expectations) along with
manipulating a range of
unfamiliar resources - clay, clay
tools and sculptures (APST 3.2).

3.4 Select and use


resources:
Demonstrate
knowledge of a range
of resources, including
ICT, that engage
students in their
learning.
3.5 Use effective
classroom
communication:
Demonstrate a range
of verbal and nonverbal communication
strategies to support
student engagement.

I created a
sequence of
two lessons
engaging the
students in
an Art
process
rather than
only creating
product.

As the students engaged in this


learning experience over two lessons,
they were able to visually see the
progression they had made and how to
transform their art piece into different
forms. The students first chose a lizard
design from a range of the school
sculptures placed within their outdoor
environment. Using a range of
coloured pencils and textas, they used
the design as a model to draw their
own lizard. In the following lesson, the
students took their design and
sculpted a clay model of their lizard
using techniques such as etching,
pinching and drawing.
The impact of student learning
throughout these lessons allowed the

Throughout the above lesson


there was a range of resources
incorporated to ensure the
success of the lesson. These
included; IWB, clipboards, paper,
pencils and textas, outdoor
sculptures, clay, clay tools and
laminated paper as place mats
(APST 3.4).

ensuring all students were still
engaged in the activity and on
task. This included a range of
verbal and non-verbal strategies
such as clear and explicit
directions, roaming, eye contact
and engagement with students.
As a result of these strategies
the lesson was able to run
smoothly without any
beahvioural concerns (APST 3.5).
