To help me plan the curriculum for the year, I tried an activity to find out some information about my new Year 10 Art Class so I can best cater to their interests. That way tasks are relevant and students are engaged in learning and motivated.
I got this idea from a Professional development workshop I went to. I gave students a green, orange and red card.
On the green card, students were asked this question, “What aspects of art do you like or feel most confident in?
On the orange card they answered, “What would you like to know more about?”
and finally on the red card they answered, “What do you dislike or feel less confident in?”
I had a list of art electives on the board to help them or they could add their own.
As you can see I added the resposes to wordle. The larger the word the more times it was mentioned. I also showed the class the results. I see I am going to have to make sure Theory lessons are exciting.
