Transcript of "Summary of expedition organizer"

  1. 1. ! ! ! ! ! ! KING MIDDLE SCHOOL N. Germani 2009 Learning Expedition Organizer KING MIDDLE SCHOOL World Languages Winter 2012 Jan. 6th KO March 29th CE "Hispanic/Francophone Art Around the World" Suggestions, please, for a snappier title!!! LEARNING TARGETS PROVIDES INDEPENDENT RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL STUDENTS: Students engage in structured research based upon their particular artist. We will ask Kelley to introduce / reinforce research protocols and discuss tools available to students. Class time, before, and after school times will be made available to students to complete work. I. COMPELLING/ENGAGING TOPIC CONNECTION TO COMMUNITY Students explore the connection between art and culture in relation to their target language. Students meet local professional artists and use their understanding of art and culture to design and present a personal piece of art in response to these topics. GUIDING QUESTIONS 1. How does (Hispanic/Francophone) culture manifest itself in (Hispanic/Francophone) art? 2. What connects you to an artist? Students must apply their understanding of the GQs to their particular artist and her/his culture through comparison, analysis, and constructing support. MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES Students are exposed to the experiences and perspectives of a wide spectrum of professional artists within the community. Students select the artist they will study and design an individual creative product. Readings and other activities provide multiple points of view on art and culture upon which students reflect. The target languages will be interwoven throughout expedition activities. ASSESSMENTS
  2. 2. KING MIDDLE SCHOOL N. Germani 2009 ASSESSMENT Cf. STA document INCLUDES HIGH QUALITY WRITING/CRAFTSMANSHIP Our high-quality writing piece is the French/Spanish essay. Students learn and review grammar, peer edit, and fine-tune their essays. A high level of craftsmanship is demanded in all expedition products culminating in the final creative product exhibited in a gallery setting. EXEMPLARS/PROD.DESC./RUBRIC: Exemplars have been developed for most aspects of this expedition. Product descriptors and rubrics have been developed for all elements of this expedition. We also use student work from previous years to demonstrate high-quality work. DESCRIPTION G. Q. Target Know/Skills Each student is responsible for developing a creative project based in part on their artist research, their understanding of that artist’s work, and their own interpretation of their artist’s life and work. The work of the professional artists involved in the kick-off provides potential ideas for the student's final products. The final product must demonstrate a high level of craftsmanship, a connection to artist and self, and creativity. OII. COMPREHENSIVE FINAL PRODUCT(S) ACCOMMODATIONS FOR DIFFERENTIATION Students are allowed to choose their own artist and the medium in which they will create their final product. They also take a multiple intelligences survey to help determine their own particular strengths as well as participate in one-on-one conferences with the teacher regarding their progress with different elements of the expedition. Afterschool Artist Workshops will also be offered for those students requiring extra help and / or time. ADAPTED FROM PROFESSIONAL PRODUCT PLAN FOR PORTFOLIO * We will make the Final Essay and/or Independent Fieldwork Act. available for inclusion in student's portfolios.
  3. 3. KING MIDDLE SCHOOL N. Germani 2009 III. PROFESSIONAL ROLE(S) Artist Critic Interviewer Researcher EXPERTS/PROFESSIONALS 10 - 12 local, professional artists provide the context for the students to explore themselves as artists and to produce an independent artistic product. (Hispanic? Francophone?) SKILL SET/FIELD EXP. Students are required to independently visit and report on an experience in the art community (gallery or museum visit, etc.) or as a practicing artist themselves (singer, dancer, painter,etc.). APPROPRIATE AUDIENCE Local, professional artists (some who participated in the kick-off), students who participated in the expedition, family and community members. IV. MAJOR LEARNING RESOURCES RESOURCES/ANCHOR TEXT We are currently compiling an ELOB-type readings collection that students will access during the expedition. We are anticipating assigning some of the readings and giving choices for others. Students will journal about selected readings and use their new understandings about art and culture to better inform their own independent work. DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE * MARVEL on laptops ON-LINE INDEX TBD ideas? PORTAPORTAL INDEPENDENT RESEARCH On laptops Will work w/Kelley local libraries
  4. 4. KING MIDDLE SCHOOL N. Germani 2009 V. CULMINATING EVENT KICK-OFF Friday January 6th KO includes 10 local, professional artists from a variety of disciplines presenting on their own work and connecting that work to the guiding questions. Each student will be able to listen to / ask questions of 4 different artists. *coverage *different use of space(s) in and around cafetorium - work with teachers to send students around area *breakfast in small gym? Artists: We will be contacting artists who have worked with us, will ask them for other suggestions, and would like for you to suggest anyone who could be involved in this event. MISC * Any suggestions for local artists? * List of 15 disciplines and accompanying artists for those struggling with a choice * Use the school as a gallery to display student work for the culminating event * Develop an LT bulls-eye board for students (à la W6) We have an extensive "to-do" list "venue wall" outside of 218: pics of local art venues kids have found build a kiosk interview activity exemplar: Youtube? Artist Declarations as part of Creative Project "grade" - separate column? opportunity to talk about learning! ! high quality work student narrative about Expedition EVENT: The Culminating Event will take place on the evening of March 22nd and will include each student in the professional role of artist presenting to local artists, family, and community members.

This is our first foray into an evening setting. We appreciate any help with logistics concerning this format.
