  15. 15. [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This lesson will probably take three weeks to complete the project and a week for presentations. It will take about a week for the students to shoot and develop their film, a week to print all of their images, about a week to do the research and create their presentations and a week to give presentations, it might be good to spread out the presentations and begin working on another project while the students are presenting. Prior to teaching this lesson it might be helpful to expose students to a variety of artists so they have a feel for what is available to them. The lesson will take a few class periods in the computer lab, to allow the students to research a variety of artists. Each student should have a different artists, so the class learns about a variety of artists. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion Back to Process

  17. 17. [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Grading will be based on the accuracy of information, the amount of effort put in during class time, and whether or not the photographs come close to emulating the style of the selected artist. It is important that the students are using their own ideas to create their images and not simply copying the exact ideas of the photographer they selected. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  18. 18. [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page The WebQuest model is best suited for learners who can navigate the Web on their own and can read the kinds of material commonly found on the Web. We can stretch the format to reach primary-aged learners, developmental English Language Learners and special populations by creating a facilitated WebQuest, one that requires an adult or older peer to drive things. When you begin the lesson reserve time in the computer lab, give the students the first part of the class to look at a few artists and decide which ones they are interested in. Allow each student to sign up for their artists without duplicates. Give them time to research and begin creating their presentations. At the end of the class tell them to shoot their roll of film in the style of that artists. The next class will be spent developing film. Give them a week to get their prints finished. They will need another session in the computer lab to scan in their images and write their comparisons. I would begin a new project and have the students present a few projects per day. To the Process segment Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  19. 19. [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This project will allow the students to become more knowledgeable about the photographic medium.
