Task I: Professional Goal Setting (Goal Statement and Action Plan due week

2; Goal Reflection due week 10).

Objective: Candidates set a professional goal, identify the action strategies they will use
to achieve that goal, and reflect on their learning and growth (as it relates to that goal)
near the end of their student teaching experience.

Resources: Candidates will use the NSU Conceptual Framework (see table below) as a
guide for determining their professional goal.

NSU Conceptual Potential Category Outcomes Description


Framework Categories (You will choose one of these outcomes
as the basis for your goal)
Knowledge of Self as an Respect and Concern for Students Knowledge of Self as an Individual
Individual recognizes the educators influence in the
lives of students and emphasizes the
Commitment to Health and Safety importance of building trust relationships,
and setting positive examples.

Knowledge of the Learner Developmental Needs Knowledge of the learner focuses on an


understanding of growth and development
of learners in the contexts in which
Student Diversity development takes place and an
understanding of how student diversity
interacts with the learning process.

Knowledge of Content Understanding Subject Matter Knowledge of Content implies a broad


understanding of the centrality of content
knowledge for teaching, and ability to
organize central concepts and principles of
a subject matter, and a responsibility for
acquiring new knowledge.

Knowledge of Pedagogy Planning Pedagogical Knowledge includes those


Implementation principles and strategies necessary for
Assessment effective teaching, including the planning,
Classroom Management and Organization implementation, and assessment of
Instructional Materials and Technology instruction, classroom management and
organization, knowledge of curriculum and
instructional materials, and integration of
technology.

Learning Community Interpersonal Relations a collaboration among teachers, students
Professional Growth and Development and their families and communities that
embraces diversity, promotes a positive
sense of personal identify, and enhances
the possibilities for academic success.

Conceptual Framework Goal Statement, Action Plan, and Reflection:


Identify the Framework Category to which your goal aligns:
Knowledge of Pedagogy

Identify the specific Category Outcome you will use to determine your goal:
Classroom Management and Organization

Based on the outcome you selected, write a specific goal for this experience. After your goal
statement, provide a brief narrative explaining the reasons as to why you chose this goal.
My goal is to develop effective management strategies to keep my classroom
quiet and controlled. This goal was chosen because this is the area that I feel
least prepared for as a new teacher. If the students are disruptive, not on task, or
acting out, then they will not be learning. I strive to have a positive work
environment for the students that is conducive for learning and productivity.

Describe the action plan (steps/strategies and resources) required to accomplish this goal:
I will write down notes on the methods used by my cooperating teachers and
other teachers that I observe during my experience. I will use these notes help
learn and implement different methods to keep my classroom under control. After
using various methods, I will reflect on if these strategies worked with the
students and adjust accordingly.

Reflect on your progress/growth toward achieving this goal (this section due by week 10):
I believe that I have made considerable progress toward my goal. I have an array
of various techniques and strategies that my cooperating teachers have used
both at the elementary and high school levels. Some similarities exist between
the two grade levels, but many times what works at one level may not work at the
other. I have a much better understanding of what works at the different age
levels and what works for my personal management style.

Task II: Contextual Information (due week 2); see rubric for scoring details
Objective: Candidates gather contextual information and discuss factors that may
influence the teaching and learning process.

Resources: Use a variety of resources to gather contextual information including


Census data for the community, school Improvement Plan, cooperating teacher, Title
I/SPED teachers, principal, school counselor, Infinite Campus, student files (with
administrative approval), school data available online.

2.1 Students will recognize various media and materials which may be used in
artwork.
2.2 Experiment with selected techniques' to improve the presentation of artwork.

List the Learning Objective(s) to be addressed in this lesson. Use the following
format: Students will be able to

Students will be able to mix three different secondary colors from primary colors.
Students will be able to create three bugs of their own design from ink blots.

Describe how the objective is relevant to students lives.

The students will use this knowledge with most artwork that they make in the
future. They will be creating an art book that includes different elements of design
that the students will be learning. The project from this lesson will go into their art
book.
List the words relevant to the content area that you will either introduce and/or
review during your lesson.

ASSESSMENT
Pre-Assessment: Describe the instrument or process you will use to measure
students level of understanding toward the learning objective(s) prior to teaching
the lesson.

Prior to this lesson, the class will complete a project using primary and secondary colors in
watercolor paint. Students will be using the mixing color activity worksheet to see what
they known and then have them complete it at the end of the lesson.

APPENDIX: Include a blank copy of the lesson pre-assessment. (if applicable)

Is your pre-assessment included at the end of this lesson plan?


Describe the timeline as to when you plan to administer the pre-assessment?
(Recommended timeline is a minimum of two days prior to teaching your lesson).

The pre-assessment will be completed several weeks before the lesson.

Create and insert a table/chart/graph that shows the pre-assessment data results.
(if applicable)
Insert an image of your table/chart/graph here.

Example of pre-assessment

Describe how the results of the pre-assessment (what the students have
demonstrated they know) will be used to design the lesson objectives, instruction,
and post-assessment.

Their achievement in that project will show me how much I will need to cover or reteach in
my lesson regarding secondary colors and proper material use. Many of the students did
not mix the correct colors together, many had difficulties following directions. Because of
this, I will repeat the directions several times, simplify the steps that they complete, and
remove any unnecessary materials, so that they have limited possibilities for mistakes.

Post-Assessment: APPENDIX: Include a blank copy of the lesson post-assessment you will use
to measure students level of understanding toward the learning objectives after teaching the lesson.

Is your post-assessment included at the end of this lesson plan?

APPENDIX: Include a copy of a Key/Product (completed by you, the teacher) which provides a model
of the desired outcome.

Is your key included at the end of this lesson plan?

TECHNOLOGY
Describe the instructional and/or assistive technology that you plan to incorporate
into the lesson to enhance instruction and student learning.

A document camera will be used during the demonstration portion of the lesson. This will
enable the student to better see what is being demonstrated. The students will also watch
a video on the projector.

v=a-jPNqQzc2Q

ACCOMMODATIONS
Describe the accommodations/differentiation/modifications you will use to meet
the needs of all learners and accommodate differences in students learning,
culture, language, etc. * Be sure that these accommodations are based on what
you identified/described in your contextual information (Task II).

A speaker system is used to help students with hearing problems.

MANAGEMENT
Identify the management and motivational strategies you will use to meet student
behavioral/developmental needs in order to keep students on task and actively engaged throughout the
lesson.

Periodically, I will ask for a thumbs up if the students have completed a task to check for
progress. I will continually ask questions to keep the students engaged. I will be putting
the paint each students paper myself to avoid messes and keep the students on track.
Supply collecting and cleanup will be done by tables to avoid students running into each
other and getting distracted. The first tables to get cleanup and ready to go receive a
numbers 1-6; number correlate with the tables that line up first. I will use prompts that the
students respond with to get their attention: ex. 3,2,1Talkings Done Hocus Pocus
Everybody Focus. I will use visual for getting talking under control: the letters A,R,T are on
the board. When one letter is flipped, it is a warning. Two letters is whispering, and three
letters means the class cannot talk anymore.
LESSON IMPLEMENTATION
I Do
(Teacher introduces lesson and models expected outcome of learning
objectives)
Describe how you will activate student interest and present the learning objective
in an engaging way (this is your lesson opening).
I will begin the lesson by introducing the project and that we will be using paint. The
possibility of working with paint excited students of this age. I will explain that we will be
mixing primary color to create secondary color splotches on our paper.

Describe how you will communicate (to students) how the objective is relevant to
their lives.
I will explain that we can mix colors to make other colors, which allows us to use less
colors. I will also introduce a new and fun way of making art that they can use.

Describe what instructional strategies you will use to model/explain/demonstrate


the knowledge and skills required of the objective. (cite theories/theorists)
I will make objectives explicit so that the students understand what is expected. When
asking what color will be produces, I will use an appropriate amount of wait time to allow
the students to think deeply about their hypothesis.

Describe how you will check for students understanding before moving on to
guided practice.
I will ask for thumbs up when they are finished with a task to check for progress. I will use
oral questioning to see if they understand the information. I will have them repeat back
information to ensure they are listening.

We Do
(Teacher engages students in guided practice)
Describe the learning activities you will use to provide students multiple opportunities to practice the
skills and content needed to meet the learning objective(s).
During the guided practice, the students will not only see what is being done, but
they will also hear what they are to do several times.

Day 1.
Start of the project will be folding our paper in half (hotdog way).
Then, we will place a dot of yellow and red paint touching each other next to the
fold.
I will ask for a hypothesis on what these two colors will make.
Fold the paper in half again and press the two colors together.
These steps will be repeated with yellow and blue, and red and blue.
Day 2. In a large group discussion, the class will discuss what we could add to the
blots to make them into bugs. We will also discuss what types of bugs we could
turn the blots into.
Describe how you will check for students understanding before moving on to independent practice.

I will walk around an observe if each student has completed the steps demonstrated
before moving on the next color combination.

You Do
(Students engage in independent practice)
Describe what the students will do to independently practice the knowledge and skills required by the
lesson objectives? (this is the post-assessment)
Day 1. The students will complete a summative assessment on mixing primary colors to
make secondary colors. They will fill in the boxes with the corresponding color.

Day 2. The students will make bugs out of their blots by adding eyes, legs, etc. with
outlining pens. Then they will cut the bugs out and paste them and the blotter bug
worksheet into their art book.

APPENDIX: Include a blank copy of your post-assessment.


Is your BLANK COPY of the post-assessment included at the end of this lesson
plan? Yes

Lesson Closing
Describe how you will reemphasize the lesson objective and any skills/content that
were taught in an interactive manner (whole/small group, etc.).
We will review which secondary colors we made. If there is time the class will watch a
video on color mixing.
ANALYZE
(This portion may only be done after the post assessment is
collected/scored.)

Describe the results of the Post-Assessment and be sure to address the following:
Students progress from pre-to-post assessment. (if applicable)
Factors that may have influenced the post assessment results.
How the results of the post assessment highlight what areas of the lesson will
require re-teaching (if any).
If applicable, insert a table/chart/graph (below) that shows the post-assessment data results. If you
used the same document for both the pre and post assessments, it is strongly encouraged that you
show the comparison.

Insert an image of your table/chart/graph here.


Description: Examples of a student projects that meet criteria and is done with good craft,
and one that does not meet criteria and/or is not done with good craft

REFLECT
List and describe two things you feel you did well to plan, implement, or assess instruction
(successes).
I think that student engagement in this lesson was high. I was successful in my classroom
management. I was proactive about possible problems with student behavior (getting too
loud out of excitement of the paint.) and addressed them before the students had a
chance to make these actions (the quietest tables received paint first).

List and describe two things you feel were challenges during the planning, implementation and/or
assessment of the lesson.
One of the challenges was the amount of time and attention it took for me to hand out the
paint. If I did not have a second pair of hands, the lesson would not have been as
successful. Another challenge was amount of extra time that the class had on the second
day.

List and describe two ideas for redesign you would make if you were to teach this lesson again.

If I were to teach this lesson again, I would have the students sit on their hands so that
they do not mess with their paper before they get the second color. I should have had
another activity planned for the extra time on the second day. We read three books, but
there was enough time to possible add short activity.

and cleanup will be done by one student at each table to avoid students running into each
other and getting distracted. Music will be played during work time to help keep the
student quiet while working. The first tables to get cleanup and ready to go receive a
numbers 1-6; number correlate with the tables that line up first. I will use prompts that the
students respond with to get their attention: ex. 3,2,1Talkings Done Hocus Pocus
Everybody Focus. I will use visual for getting talking under control: the letters A,R,T are on
the board. When one letter is flipped, it is a warning. Two letters is whispering, and three
letters means the class cannot talk anymore. When a student is finished with the project,
but the rest of the class is not finished, they can do a free draw activity.

LESSON IMPLEMENTATION
I Do
(Teacher introduces lesson and models expected outcome of learning
objectives)
Describe how you will activate student interest and present the learning objective
in an engaging way (this is your lesson opening).
L1. I will show students the project that they are going to complete and show a quick video
of Cat in the Hat to gain student attention.
L2. I will begin the lesson by showing two videos on warm and cool colors. I will be
introducing the project and review types of line. I will introduce/review diagonal lines,
curved lines, warm colors, and cool colors. I will have the two categories of warm and cool
colors on the board, and the students will place colored pieces of paper on the board under
the correct category.
L3. I will show a PowerPoint of op art and show a video of different op artists. This will gain
their interest in the lesson. I will also show a video of complementary colors.

Describe how you will communicate (to students) how the objective is relevant to
their lives.
L1. I will explain how horizontal and vertical lines are used to make stripes, which is the
dress-up day theme for that day (Reading Across America/ Dr. Seuss Week).
L2. I will explain that we will be using warm and cool colors for the next several years in
art.
L3. Op art is interesting and tricks your eyes.
Describe what instructional strategies you will use to model/explain/demonstrate
the knowledge and skills required of the objective. (cite theories/theorists)
L1. I will use a directed drawing as a method of scaffolding (Vygotsky) to ensure that the
students are confident and not overwhelmed by what they must draw.
L2. And L3. I will make objectives explicit so that the students understand what is
expected.

Describe how you will check for students understanding before moving on to
guided practice.
L1. L2. And L3. I will ask for thumbs up when they are finished with a task to check for
progress. I will use oral questioning to see if they understand the information. I will have
them repeat back information to ensure that they are listening.

We Do
(Teacher engages students in guided practice)
Describe the learning activities you will use to provide students multiple opportunities to practice the
skills and content needed to meet the learning objective(s).

L1. I will lead a directed line drawing of the Cat in the Hat.
L2. We will start by tracing our hand onto the paper. I will demonstrate where to
make first shape, how to continue that shape until it fills the paper, and how to
trace my hand. The students will complete these steps as I do them. During the
guided practice, the students will not only see what is being done, but they will
also hear what they are to do several times.
L3. We will start by drawing vertical lines on our paper with the ruler then add
three different shapes onto the paper.

Describe how you will check for students understanding before moving on to independent practice.

I will walk around and observe if each student has completed the steps demonstrated
before moving onto the next step.

You Do
(Students engage in independent practice)
Describe what the students will do to independently practice the knowledge and skills required by the
lesson objectives? (this is the post-assessment)
L1. The students will outline everything with sharpie, color the hat and bowtie with marker,
then cut it out and paste it to their background paper.
L2. The students will outline everything with sharpie then use marker to color in the cool
and warm colors.
L3. Students will outline everything with sharpie, then use markers to create a
complementary colored checkered pattern.

APPENDIX: Include a blank copy of your post-assessment.


Is your BLANK COPY of the post-assessment included at the end of this lesson
plan?

Lesson Closing
Describe how you will reemphasize the lesson objective and any skills/content that
were taught in an interactive manner (whole/small group, etc.).
L1. I will read Cat in the Hat, time permitting.
L2. As a whole group, we will review warm and cool colors. I will lead an informal art
critique if we have extra time.
L3. At their tables, the students will compare/contrast projects from lesson 2 and lesson 3.

ANALYZE
(This portion may only be done after the post assessment is
collected/scored.)

Describe the results of the Post-Assessment and be sure to address the following:
Students progress from pre-to-post assessment. (if applicable)
Factors that may have influenced the post assessment results.
How the results of the post assessment highlight what areas of the lesson will
require re-teaching (if any).
If applicable, insert a table/chart/graph (below) that shows the post-assessment data results. If you
used the same document for both the pre and post assessments, it is strongly encouraged that you
show the comparison.
Insert an image of your table/chart/graph here.

Description: Lesson 1, 2, and 3 examples of a student project that meet criteria and is
done with good craft, and one that does not meet criteria and/or is not done with good
craft.
REFLECT
List and describe two things you feel you did well to plan, implement, or assess instruction
(successes).
L1. I felt that my pacing of the lesson went well, since most of the students finished on
time. I think the choice of subject was good for this grade level. They had recently read
Cat in the Hat in class, and were excited to be making one themselves.
L2. The use of multiple videos and sorting colors worked well at demonstrating the
differences between warm and cool colors. I think that I had kept their attention and
avoided disruptions better than in Lesson 1. The project was better suited for the short
attention spans in this group of students.
L3. I think that I did well at incorporating complementary colors into a lesson that the
students enjoy. I think my choice of video was received well by the students. It kept their
attention, and got them excited about our project.

List and describe two things you feel were challenges during the planning, implementation and/or
assessment of the lesson.
L1. The challenges of this lesson were dealing with classroom management. I had spent a
lot of time addressing behaviors and catching up students who came in late, so I did not
have much time to give feedback to most of the students. Consequently, some students
did not complete the projects per the requirements. I was not proactive about addressing
the challenges that would need to be addressed during clean-up.
L2. Two of the challenges was making sure all the students correctly added echo lines to
the shape with enough space in between, and how each area or section is a different warm
or cool color. I had some student color the entire hand one color.
L3. Some students forgot to skip a line and ended up with two of the same colors right
next to each other. Other students did not follow directions and used three colors. Many
students did not finish the project.

List and describe two ideas for redesign you would make if you were to teach this lesson again.

L1. Next time I teach this lesson. I may have the students hand in their work in piles rather
than to the drying rack to avoid congestion and wasted time during cleanup. I will also add
new management strategies to help with discipline and disruptions.
L2. I would redesign how I teach the echo lines. I would spend more time demonstrating,
possibly on several different pieces of paper to demonstrate how different types of shapes
would look. This could also be some with how to color the hand and backgrounds. I need to
spend more time on how to color each section differently.
L3. I need to stress the importance of coloring ever other space. To help the students listen
to this step, I will have all eyes on my and not allow them to work as I demonstrate. As an
incentive to keep the students on task, I could remind them that I am looking to pick an
artist of the week, and to be chosen, you must finish by the end of class. I could also
periodically tell the student how much time is left in class.

ASSESSMENT
Pre-Assessment: Describe the instrument or process you will use to
measure students level of understanding toward the learning objective(s)
prior to teaching the lesson.

The students will complete a worksheet and four thumbnail sketches


before they start the project. This will allow me to see their thought
process and level of craft and abilities. Full credit will be given if fully
completed and turned in on time. The reasoning for the pre-assessment is
to help students put more thought into their composition and subject
matter, and for me to understand that students understanding of
composition.
APPENDIX: Include a blank copy of the lesson pre-assessment. (if
applicable)

Is your pre-assessment included at the end of this lesson plan?


Describe the timeline as to when you plan to administer the pre-
assessment?
(Recommended timeline is a minimum of two days prior to teaching your
lesson).

This will be completed at least a day before they start their project.

Describe how the results of the pre-assessment (what the students have
demonstrated they know) will be used to design the lesson objectives,
instruction, and post-assessment.

The results of the pre-assessment will allow me know gain knowledge of


their ability to create an original work of art with good composition. I can
use this to address problems that the students may have before the
students start working.

TECHNOLOGY
Describe the instructional and/or assistive technology that you plan to incorporate
into the lesson to enhance instruction and student learning.

The students will use their school issued Chromebook to find paintings by Georgia
OKeefe and reference photos. A projector to show the PowerPoint and the YouTube
video will be needed.

ACCOMMODATIONS
Describe the accommodations/differentiation/modifications you will use to meet
the needs of all learners and accommodate differences in students learning,
culture, language, etc. * Be sure that these accommodations are based on what
you identified/described in your contextual information (Task II).

Students who have attention or vision issues are seated near the board, so that
they can better see the PowerPoint and instructions. After giving instructions I will
go around the room and monitor the students work. This will be done make sure
that the ELL and students with attention issues understood the directions, and give
feedback and redirection as needed. A student who was gone for week because of
the hospitalization was given a paper that was cut in half to allow the students to
finish in a timely manner. Students who are not done by the last work day will
have one week to complete the projects outside of class.
MANAGEMENT
Identify the management and motivational strategies you will use to meet student
behavioral/developmental needs in order to keep students on task and actively engaged throughout
the lesson.

I will walk around the room to use my proximity to settle any students talking or
being off-task. Music is played during work time to encourage the students to not
talk, the students are also allowed to listen to their own music. I will tell the
students when something is important in order to gain their attention, ex. due
dates, grading criteria, etc. The students fill out daily logs, which gives them the
opportunity to let me know if they have any questions or concerns, but it also
allows me to give them feedback about their work ethic or any other problem I
may be having with them in class without having to single them out in front of
other students.

LESSON IMPLEMENTATION
I Do
(Teacher introduces lesson and models expected outcome of learning
objectives)
Describe how you will activate student interest and present the learning objective
in an engaging way (this is your lesson opening).
The lesson will begin with a brief video about Georgia OKeefes life and her
artwork. The video explains her personal and art background, interest in various
subjects, and her work on the Southwest landscape.

Describe how you will communicate (to students) how the objective is relevant to
their lives.
I will tell the class that the steps used in the lesson will be used in the following
lessons and other art classes. They will be using a new type of paper and medium
that they may enjoy or want to use for future drawings.

Describe what instructional strategies you will use to model/explain/demonstrate


the knowledge and skills required of the objective. (cite theories/theorists)
I will model how to build an original work from non-original sources using the
thinking-aloud method. I will give the students plenty of wait time between my
questions to allow the students to think deeper about their answers.

Describe how you will check for students understanding before moving on to
guided practice.
I will ask questions and ask for feedback to see if they are understanding the
requirements.

We Do
(Teacher engages students in guided practice)
Describe the learning activities you will use to provide students multiple opportunities to practice the
skills and content needed to meet the learning objective(s).
Day 1. The students will create 4 thumbnail sketches. The sketches are done on
9x12 paper, each sketch is 4.5x6, and will have the rest of the class period to
finish. This will allow them the opportunity to experiment with composition and
subject matter.
Describe how you will check for students understanding before moving on to independent practice.
I will look over each of the sketches to make sure that the students are meeting
the criteria and their potential before they start on the project. I will discuss how
they will incorporate Georgia OKeefes style, what color scheme they will use, and
their thought process on creating their work. I will also give any suggestions about
composition, what paper color may work best for them, or any other information
that will help them create a successful work.

You Do
(Students engage in independent practice)
Describe what the students will do to independently practice the knowledge and skills required by the
lesson objectives? (this is the post-assessment)
Day 2. Students will create a chalk pastel drawing on velvet paper in the style of Georgia
OKeefe. They will transfer their sketch to the velvet paper by freehand, gridding, or
sketching onto larger paper and using graphite paper to transfer. They can experiment on
the extra smaller strips of velvet paper. They will receive a blending stick to help blend
the chalk into the paper.

APPENDIX: Include a blank copy of your post-assessment.


Is your BLANK COPY of the post-assessment included at the end of this lesson
plan?

Lesson Closing
Describe how you will reemphasize the lesson objective and any skills/content that
were taught in an interactive manner (whole/small group, etc.).
Day 1. I will review the grading criteria with the students, which are based on the
objectives. I will also review how to create original work and how to draw
inspiration from Georgia OKeefe. Day 2. We will have a discussion in small groups
about what they liked or disliked about Georgia OKeefes work, and what element
of her work they incorporated into their own artwork.

ANALYZE
(This portion may only be done after the post assessment is
collected/scored.)
Describe the results of the Post-Assessment and be sure to address the following:
Students progress from pre-to-post assessment. (if applicable)
Factors that may have influenced the post assessment results.
How the results of the post assessment highlight what areas of the lesson
will require re-teaching (if any).
If applicable, insert a table/chart/graph (below) that shows the post-assessment data
results. If you used the same document for both the pre and post assessments, it is strongly
encouraged that you show the comparison.

Description: Examples of Student work (two that met criteria and shows good
craft and one that does not), the grading criteria, and a chart showing the overall
scores for the class.

REFLECT
List and describe two things you feel you did well to plan, implement, or assess instruction
(successes).
Having the students create thumbnail sketches was an appropriate choice. Many
students first sketch was not the one they chose for their final drawing. My
presentation, the examples given, and the posted visuals on creating original
artwork were helpful to the students and clearly outlined my expectations.

List and describe two things you feel were challenges during the planning, implementation and/or
assessment of the lesson.
Some of the students did not check with me between making sketches and
starting the project. Because of this, those students did not create work that was
as original or as well composed when compared with the students who did receive
my feedback. Assessing the originality of the artwork for students who did not turn
in their reference photos was difficult. Turning in the references was required, but
many turned them in late, making the grading process more difficult.

List and describe two ideas for redesign you would make if you were to teach this lesson again.
If I were to teach this lesson again, I would require the students talk with me
before starting the final project. They would need my signature on their sketches
to receive full credit. I would also cut larger strips if velvet paper for the students
to practice on. Since they are using a new material, I will give the students larger
strips to experiment on, so that they can have more practice.

LESSON IMPLEMENTATION
I Do
(Teacher introduces lesson and models expected outcome of learning
objectives)
Describe how you will activate student interest and present the learning objective
in an engaging way (this is your lesson opening).
After a brief introduction of the watercolor techniques using a PowerPoint, I will
read The Three Questions by Leo Tolstoy. The illustrations that accompany the
text, done by a professional artist, use many watercolor techniques that the
students are learning about.

Describe how you will communicate (to students) how the objective is relevant to
their lives.
I will tell them that the techniques used in the lesson will be used in the following
lesson on watercolor portraits and other art classes. They will be using a new type
of paper and medium that they may enjoy or want to use for future paintings.

Describe what instructional strategies you will use to model/explain/demonstrate


the knowledge and skills required of the objective. (cite theories/theorists)
I will model how I would like the students to respond to the illustrations. On the
cover, I will point out the different techniques that are used by the artist, and how
two different techniques could have been used for one of the areas

Describe how you will check for students understanding before moving on to
guided practice.
I will ask questions and ask for feedback to see if they are understanding the
techniques.
We Do
(Teacher engages students in guided practice)
Describe the learning activities you will use to provide students multiple opportunities to practice the
skills and content needed to meet the learning objective(s).
While reading The Three Questions, the illustrated pages will be projected onto
the screen. On each page the students will identify the different techniques that
were used in that illustration, or how they could use several different techniques to
create the same effect.
Describe how you will check for students understanding before moving on to independent practice.
During the task, I will have students raise their hand if they agree with their
classmates guess of what technique the illustrator used. After reading the book, I
will ask the students if they have any questions or if they do not understand any of
the techniques. I will also walk around the room, and ask the students one-on-one.

You Do
(Students engage in independent practice)
Describe what the students will do to independently practice the knowledge and skills required by the
lesson objectives? (this is the post-assessment)
Students will look through magazines that are provided, and they will choose a photo to
recreate. After choosing the photo they will transfer it onto watercolor paper by gridding,
using the light boxes, or by freehand. They will match the colors of the photo by using
color mixing theories learned in earlier projects. They will also do their best to paint in a
realistic manner.

APPENDIX: Include a blank copy of your post-assessment.


Is your BLANK COPY of the post-assessment included at the end of this lesson

Lesson Closing
Describe how you will reemphasize the lesson objective and any skills/content that
were taught in an interactive manner (whole/small group, etc.).
During the last designated class for this assignment, the students will have their
projects laying on the desk. They will walk around the room, looking at the others
artwork, and try to identify the techniques that the other students have used.

REFLECT
List and describe two things you feel you did well to plan, implement, or assess instruction
(successes).
The students seemed to have a good grasp of identifying the types of techniques
used in a piece of watercolor artwork. Many of the student enjoyed this project, I
did well at planning a lesson and finding magazines that allowed them to create
something they were interested in.

List and describe two things you feel were challenges during the planning, implementation and/or
assessment of the lesson.
A challenge of the lesson was getting all the information to every student. Some
were absent from class when I would introduce or review the watercolor
techniques. Some students were also gone when I presented the final project
criteria. It was difficult to keep track of which students needed the information.
Another challenge was getting students to interact during class discussions. They
were not very forthcoming with asked questions as a whole group, but were
conversational when talked to one-on-one.

List and describe two ideas for redesign you would make if you were to teach this lesson again.
If I were to redesign this lesson, the students would have more extensive practice
of the wet-on-wet technique, having them paint on paper that varied from soaking
wet to barely damp. I would also have the students practice different techniques
that were specifically in the photo that they had chosen before trying it on their
final paper. The worksheet allowed them the practice techniques, but it did not
prepare them enough for trying to recreate a specific texture or effect that was in
their photo.

LESSON IMPLEMENTATION
I Do
(Teacher introduces lesson and models expected outcome of learning
objectives)
Describe how you will activate student interest and present the learning objective
in an engaging way (this is your lesson opening).
L1. I will start the lesson with introducing the ebony pencil.
L2. I will start the lesson by explaining how the previous lesson on tonal value
builds the foundation for what the students will be working on next.
L3. I will introduce the project by showing project examples of other students and
pencil portraits of professional artists.

Describe how you will communicate (to students) how the objective is relevant to
their lives.
I will show the students how each of the lessons build on each other. The tonal
value helps understand how to create a 3D looking form. Creating the shapes
helps build knowledge of how to create the contours of the face. Drawing
realistically is often the goal of most students who sign up from Drawing I, and this
task will help build their skill tremendously.
Describe what instructional strategies you will use to model/explain/demonstrate
the knowledge and skills required of the objective. (cite theories/theorists)
During many of the instruction and demonstrations I will use the think aloud
method. I will verbalize my thought process, so that they can better understand
the mental process of making a successful piece of art. I will also give a significant
amount of wait time after asking a question to give the student plenty of time to
think about the answers that they give. This will especially be done when talking
with them one-on-one.

Describe how you will check for students understanding before moving on to
guided practice.
L1. I will ask the class to raise their hand if they have used the ebony pencil
before.
L2. I will ask the class to raise their hand if they are confident with making a
drawing look 3D or realistic.
L3. I will ask the class to raise their hand if they have gridded in a previous class.

We Do
(Teacher engages students in guided practice)
Describe the learning activities you will use to provide students multiple opportunities to practice the
skills and content needed to meet the learning objective(s).
L1. Day 1: I will demonstrate how to create the high dark then the students will
follow. I will also demonstrate how to create the medium to low light using only the
blending stick on those portions. I will show past student examples, and the class
will discuss what qualities make the work successful or not. Day 2: I will
demonstrate how to blend from one tone to the next to create smooth transitions.
I will show past student examples, and the class will discuss what qualities make
the work successful or not.
L2. Day 1: I will demonstrate how to create the 3D effect on the cone by using all
seven values, creating smooth transitions, and determining which direction the
pencil should be applied. The students can practice on the shapes provided. This
will be repeated on day 2 and 3 with both the can and wave.
L3. Day 1: I will demonstrate how to grid the photo and outline the contours of the
face. We will have a class discussion on how being precise with this step will set
the students up for success in the next step. Day 2 I will show how to start the
drawing on the large paper. I will demonstrate how we piece together the drawing
like a puzzle and how to determine where lines intersect the grid.

Describe how you will check for students understanding before moving on to independent practice.
L1, L2, and L3. We will have class discussions about an example that is shown on
the board. They will determine what was successful or not successful about the
work, and I will informally assess their understanding of the task during this
portion.

You Do
(Students engage in independent practice)
Describe what the students will do to independently practice the knowledge and skills required by the
lesson objectives? (this is the post-assessment)
L1. The students will create the steps and gradation scale with the remaining time.
L2. The students will create a 3D cone, can, and wave.
L3. Day 1: Students will complete a worksheet that assesses their understanding of the
gridding process and the reasoning behind their choice of subject for the portrait. Day 2
The students will spend the next couple weeks gridding their photo and creating a
graphite portrait.

APPENDIX: Include a blank copy of your post-assessment.


Is your BLANK COPY of the post-assessment included at the end of this lesson
plan?

Lesson Closing
Describe how you will reemphasize the lesson objective and any skills/content that
were taught in an interactive manner (whole/small group, etc.).
L1, L2, and L3. The students will self-grade their projects in order to have students
think critically about what they could have done to receive a better grade and help
create the habit of self-critiquing artwork.
L3. The students on the last working day will discuss in small groups why they
chose the person they had drawn. They will also describe how their personal
interests may influence how they would or would not like another students
portrait.

ANALYZE
(This portion may only be done after the post assessment is
collected/scored.)
Describe the results of the Post-Assessment and be sure to address the following:
1. Students progress from pre-to-post assessment. (if applicable)
2. Factors that may have influenced the post assessment results.
3. How the results of the post assessment highlight what areas of the
lesson will require re-teaching (if any).
If applicable, insert a table/chart/graph (below) that shows the post-assessment data
results. If you used the same document for both the pre and post assessments, it is strongly
encouraged that you show the comparison.

Description:
Lesson 1, 2, and 3 examples of a project that met the objectives and one that
does not meet the criteria. Graph of the grades for each student. Grading criteria
for each project.

REFLECT
List and describe two things you feel you did well to plan, implement, or assess instruction
(successes).
I did well at explaining my expectations and how they can improve their work.
Many of the students asked plenty of questions and strived to improve their work.
Some made great strides from their first assignment to their last, and I believe
that it was from fully explaining my expectations when giving whole-group
instructions and answering one-on-one questions. I think the scaffolding in each
lesson was successful. The skills they learned at each stage prepared them well for
the challenge of the next project.

List and describe two things you feel were challenges during the planning, implementation and/or
assessment of the lesson.
A challenge of the lesson was getting all the information to every student. Many
students were absent from class when I introduced or reviewed new concepts or
presented the final project criteria. It was difficult to keep track of which students
needed the information. Another challenge was grading all the work. Many
projects were turned in late, and turned in on various days. I fell as though I may
have graded more harshly with ones that I received later.
List and describe two ideas for redesign you would make if you were to teach this lesson again.
If I were to redesign this lesson, I would make a more precise rubric that would
allow me to grade evenly across the class even if I was grading something a
month after I graded the first batch of papers. I would also create a visual to be on
the wall or a handout to be given to the students that shows different examples of
the project of various degrees of craft with corresponding grades. This would allow
them to see what level of work receives an A, B, C, D, or F.
