Unit Plan: Together with a partner, students will create one Unit Plan that contains several lessons, spanning several days. The
instructor will design these pairings with students interests and experiences in mind. The audience for the Unit Plan will be
your future secondary school students (grades 7-12) with limited to moderate exposure to (1) painting/drawing, (2) new media,
(3) sculpture/fibers, (4) ceramics/pottery, (5) printmaking, (6) jewelry/metals, (7) photography, and (8) collage/assemblage.
The Unit will be inspired by course content regarding the secondary school learner: pedagogical choices (Patterson, 2011, p.
6); special education (Gerber & Guay, 2007); practice and theory (Bird, 2012); key ideas, techniques, cultural contexts, and
creative inspiration (Parks, 2015, p. 4); and assessment (Beattie, 1997).

Please submit one hard copy of the Unit Plan and appendices to me (printed, double-sided, and stapled) on the due date. Also
by the due date, the completed Unit Plan and appendices should be emailed to peers in one document/attachment as a
resource for future use: login to Blackboard/ My SacCT, click on ART 135, click on Course Tools > Send Email > All
Users.

Students will be given a worksheet containing a list of the key ideas and questions that the student will be required to
complete within the class.

Lesson Procedures: Outline the steps that will happen first, second, etc. in the Procedures that follow to teach
what you expect the students to learn. Procedures should be the longest section in the Lesson Plan, and should be
very specific and detailed, including time spent on each task. Describe directions you plan to give the students,
teaching models/strategies you plan to use during the lesson, different activities your students will do, etc. Be sure
to include management issues such as transitions, room arrangements, and student groupings.

1. Focus Lesson (teacher does): Detail opening activities by exploring the following questions. How will you
motivate the students to want to learn the new concepts (see Key Concepts) and strategies/skills (see Lesson
Objectives)? How will you introduce the Big Idea of the lesson? How will you link this lesson to the students prior
knowledge?

The teacher will introduce political and social movements occurring within the Art world (DADA) and correlate it in
connection to feminist artists ( Hoch and Vasconcelos). Presenting visuals of their works and discussing their
background history will provide enough cultural context in order for the students to understand their individual
political-social platforms. By providing the motives behind DADA/Feminist artists can the students then begin to
correlate and identify the point of view of the artists within their works.

Modeling (teacher does): Name and demonstrate the content area strategies/skills (see Lesson Objectives)
that are the focus of the lesson. Explain and show their purpose. Use analogies or other concrete examples to
Lesson Plan Template 5

explain concepts (see Key Concepts).


The teacher will present a timeline of events leading up to the creation and ideas surrounding the DADA movement,
discuss how anti-art and anti-war played a pivotal role for Dadaist artist and how they saw the world. The instructor
will then discuss and define feminist movements seen within the art community (Gorrilla girls) and lead into
discussing two artist (Hoch and Vasconcelos) relating to past and present examples of feminist art works. Discuss
the similar media applications found within their works (collage, texture, lace) as well as their differences. Students
will be allotted time to openly discuss their understanding of DADA and feminism, and then asked about how they
see the artists political platforms within Hoch and Vasconcelos art works. Collectively, as a class they will be
encouraged to explain how they may draw a connection to how DADA and feminism can be similar and different to
one another. After the lecture and class discussion is finished students will be given a question-air assessment
covering what has been lectured in class. Within the remaining allotted time, students will be required to complete
the worksheet or finish it at home if time runs out. Students will be graded upon completion and their ability to fulfill
the scoring rubric standards.

2. Guided Instruction (teacher and students do together): Detail main activities by exploring the following
questions. What Essential Questions will you ask students to facilitate learning? How will you organize students?
What will you do/say during each learning activity? What will the students do (see Lesson Objectives)?

Students will be asked to discuss their understanding of DADA and Feminist art. As a class, they will refer to their
notes and be questioned on what they think DADA is about. To discuss in their own words what motivated DADA
artist and Feminist artist. Get the class to define what DADA and Feminism is all about. As the instructor, he/she
write down their collective ideas on a whiteboard/chalkboard and assess from there whether they are understanding
the key concepts and ideas. From their dialogue the teacher can assess what concepts the class maybe struggling to
understand. Introducing Hoch and Vasconcelos can be an opportunity to engage with the students and ask for input
on assessing and evaluating the artists works of art. Look at the artists different approaches, ask the students
about their input. Whether they like the work of art. Whether they think the collage has been successfully executed.
Have them discuss whether they feel that the artists platform is being conveyed successfully? Have the class
discuss the potential benefits or disadvantages of incorporating different media together. Most importantly, just
getting the class comfortable with discussing, analyzing, interpreting and redefining a work of art.

3. Collaborative Learning (students do together): What activity will you include so that students have an
opportunity to negotiate understandings and engage in inquiry with peers?
Lesson Plan Template 6

Through open class discussion the instructor will allot an opportunity for his/her students to pair share ideas to the
class, draw insight and clarity from each other, and encourage an open communication with not only the instructor
but with their classroom community as well. If classroom discussion isnt occurring, the class will be given the
opportunity to get into groups small groups of 3-4 people and share ideas with one another for a few minutes,
regroup & discuss ideas to the class.

4. Independent Learning (students do alone): What activity will the students complete independently to apply
their newly formed understanding to novel situations? What will the students explore independently?

After lecture and class discussion, students will be presented with a worksheet that covers questions in relation to
DADA, Feminist Movements, Hannah Hoch, Joanna Vasconelos, collaging, past-contemporary feminist art work, and
get the students to draw connections to all these topics through critical thinking, analyzing and evaluating,
critiquing, and responding. This provides the student an opportunity to address the political, socio-economic, and
cultural aspect of the class activity by deriving insight from their own understanding.

Closure: How will you end the lesson to solidify learning? How will you and/or students summarize concepts
and strategies/skills (see Key Concepts and Lesson Objectives) for the day?
If time allows, once the students have finished their worksheet questionnaire the instructor will ask what they
thought about the lecture. What main points they found interesting. What they did and didnt like about the art
works? Theyll be encouraged to classify whether they would consider it a work of art or not and have them defend
their stance. Once everything has been addressed the instructor will hint at what students can expect to happen for
the next class activity the following day.

1. How will you adapt the various aspects of the lesson for students with disabilities?
