TEACHING AND LEARNING WITH DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY ELRN 750-SPRING 2012-NSUAUTHENTIC LEARNINGPROJECT
Author:TRANG NGUYENInstructor:DR. GREGORY M. FRANCOMNORTHERN STATE UNIVERSITY
AUTHENTIC LEARNING PROJECT Subject: Art history, thinking outside the box Grade: 6-8 Students will create their own version of Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”
Primary Core ObjectivesAUTHENTIC LEARNING PROJECT -Students will understand and use visual arts as a means for creative self- expression and interpersonal communication. -Students will understand the relationship between visual arts and history, culture, and society. -Students will demonstrate a capacity for critical and sensitive response to various visual arts experiences. -Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes. -Students will apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes. -Students will create original works as a means of personal expression.
LEARNING OUTCOMES Students will explore the artists background, examine his particular style by taking a look at some of his work, and have an opportunity to create their own Van Gogh-like picture and identify several perspectives in it.
DESCRIPTION OF THE AUTHENTIC LEARNING IN THE PROJECT The students may learn about Van Gogh-the famous artist of the art world and his art works. And then the students create their own artwork. The students learned to understand the ideas and approach visual art. The visual arts were naturally contributing higher-order thinking skills (perceiving art), acquiring a depth of knowledge (long-term involvement with the art process), and providing value and meaning outside the classroom (real-world applications of the visual arts).
HOW THE PROJECT REQUIRES LEARNERS TO EITHER DESIGN, EXPERIMENT, OR COMMUNICATE The students will learned about Van Gogh by following a presentation by the teacher. They will also look at the drawing “Starry Night” as a class and identify perspectives shown by pointing to the site of the drawing. The students also draw the picture from the “correct” point of perspective. The “correct” point of perspective may be whichever point of perspective the student feels is correct. The students will write a 4-sentence story about their picture that they just drew and read their stories out loud to the class. Last, they will discuss their pictures using the perspectives they think are the most similar to the authentic picture and also tell about the differences in their picture.
DESCRIPTION OF WHAT LEARNERS WILL COMPLETE FOR THE PROJECT One of Van Goghs most famous works is "Starry Night". In an art project that focused on the concept of texture, each student was asked to create his or her own version of Van Goghs famous painting. The students will create a picture similar to Van Gogh’s “Starry Night." by using either pencil, watercolor or Acrylic color on paper. They will self-evaluate their pictures and find at least three perspectives that are similar to both art works. They must present their final amazing artwork. They also have an assignment writing a four to five sentence story about their drawing.

Assessment PlanThere are various ways to assessstudents with the subject of art.The teacher observes during thestudents’ drawing to recognize whounderstands the project, and who iscreating their artwork with at leastthree "correct perspective points".The teacher assesses during students’discussion time and exchange ideas forwhat they learned about the correctperspective points. At this time, theteacher will assess the students throughtheir completed artwork. This step willshow their creativity and evaluate theirartistic abilities.
