  • These page plays for 36 seconds and then automatically moves to the next slide. The music and questions are an attempt to engage the students
  • On this page I let my learners speak their L1 – I walk around class to hear some English words they use and put them on the board
  • Brainstorm - Put the questions up on the screen and ask learners to discuss in small groups… I give groups of 3 two minutes to write down as many words (nouns) that they know associated with art and painting Reveal the words on the screen
  • Ask the learners to define the words… if they struggle click on the word to go to the definition page… use the palette to return to this page
  • Example: use the palette to return to Slide 6
  • The main question – have the students brainstorm - put the best ideas on the board
  • Develop the learners’ ideas with these adjectives about art
  • This page is twelve minutes long… allowing the learners to talk for 3 minutes on one picture, that picture then slides to the side and is replaced by another picture. There are 5 pictures in total. Mona Lisa, Lily Pond (Monet), Scream, Haywain, Sisteenth Chapel
  • Develop the questions as you see fit
  • Arouse the students’ interest
  • Does art become art just because someone pays money for it? Ask students what the bricks make them feel – provoke their ideas… and maybe tell them that that is what art is… thought provoking
  • Group or whole class discussion
  • The final 3 slides are open for interpretation and opinions Banksy Pollock
  • Hirst Warhol
  • Banksy Lichtenstein
