I can: demonstrate understanding of color theory specifically concerning primary, secondary, and
tertiary colors, as well as color schemes

This means: I will accurately create a color wheel illustrating red, red-orange, orange, yellow-orange,
yellow, yellow-green, green, blue-green, blue, indigo, violet, red-violet as well as a tint and shade of
each of those colors.

List of Assessments: (Note whether the assessment is formative or summative)

Formative: kahoot

lesson, To put students into a receptive frame of
mind.
To focus student attention on the lesson.
To create an organizing framework for the
ideas, principles, or information that is to
follow (advanced organizers)
An anticipatory set is used any time a different
activity or new concept is to be introduced.
How do you intend to engage your students in
thinking during the Anticipatory Set? The strategy I intend to use is a video paired with optical illusion

Why are you using it at this point in your lesson? I am using this strategy here because: I want students to think of color in a new way.

can begin this step with me. I will also be demonstrating where to place primary colors as
well as how to get started off of those. I will be doing all of this via the document camera
so that students can remain seated at the demonstration and see it on the screen. Some
things to keep in mind:

1. Students will mark the center of their circle with pencil


2. Students will make their outer circle as big as possible
3. Students will then make two smaller circles within that circle
4. Students will then split the circle into fourths with two lines (going through
center dot)
5. Students will then take the TWO right fourths and split each of them into thirds
6. Students will then draw these lines to the other side (circle should be split in 12)
7. Students will then label their color wheel with names of colors
8. Then start with primary colors
9. Then secondary+ tints and shades
10. Then tertiary+ tints and shades
11. Then tints and shades of primary colors

Work time: (20 minutes) whole-class practice


During this time students will (ideally) be working silently. Mr. Moyer and I will be
walking around the room assisting and addressing differentiation.

Turn-and-talk: (5 minutes)
Students will take a brief break from working to give the person sitting next to them
feedback. What could they do better? What are they doing well? Did they do their
primary colors first? How are secondary and tertiary colors? How are tints and shades?

Work time: (15 minutes) whole-class practice


During this time students will (ideally) be working silently. Mr. Moyer and I will be
walking around the room assisting and addressing differentiation. Hopefully students
will have gotten something specific from the turn-and-talk to improve and/or work on.

Clean up: 1:30-1:40


Students will quickly clean up paint, clean brushes, wipe down tables, and put
sketchbooks away.

Kahoot: 1:40-1:46 check for understanding


Students will answer the same questions they answered in the beginning of class. But
now I will call on a few students to clarify/ explain/ dive deeper. I want this assessment
to feel a little less formal. This will go right up to the bell and students will leave.
How do you intend to engage your students in
thinking during the PROCEDURE? The strategy I intend to use is checking in with students individually AND having students
do a turn and talk to give feedback midway through work time.
Why are you using it at this point in your lesson?
I am using this strategy here because: I can scaffold individual road blocks as I walk
around and students usually work for the entirety of the work time but their productivity
goes down so Im hoping in splitting it with a turn and talk that students will then be
able to effectively use the rest of class.

Closure My closure will really be the closing kahoot, which will have the same questions they

out of what has just been taught. Any Questions?
No. OK, lets move on is not closure. Closure is used:
To cue students to the fact that they have
arrived at an important point in the lesson or
the end of a lesson.
To help organize student learning
To help form a coherent picture and to consolidate.

To modify: If the activity is too advanced for a child,
how will you modify it so that they can be successful?
To extend: If the activity is too easy for a child, how
will you extend it to develop their emerging skills?
Assessment Reflection: (data analysis) I will have the data set from the kahoot games to test if they know the theories of color
How will you know if students met the learning theory. This set includes a before and after from the lesson. I will also have their color
