1 Introduction (1 Day)

Activity: Presenting

Teacher introduces Feldman's model to students through whole group modeling.

Student Instructions

Students actively participate in questioning and discussions.

2 Analysis (1-2 days)

Teacher creates and prints QR codes for several pieces of art work, at least one per student.  The QR codes are generated using a website with a photo of the art and corresponding information, preferably from its museum.  

Teacher creates a pre, during, and post analysis sheet for students to complete using notability while analyzing the art. 

Teacher walks around, questioning students based on their analysis sheets and supporting students when needed.

Here's the link to a folder containing the QR Codes and analysis sheets.

Student Instructions

Students select a QR code at random to scan.  Selecting at random instead of allowing the students to choose saves time and forces students to analyze something they may not initially be drawn to.

Students complete the pre-analysis of the artwork and then begin Feldman's model using Notability to complete the analysis sheet.  Students finish with their post analysis.

3 Wrap Up

Free, Paid

Teacher creates a Kahoot asking the students if they value the piece after analyzing it.  This is an important question, especically for the students who didn't "like" their artwork when they scanned it.  The second question makes a connection to digging deeper instead of relying on snap judgements.

Here's the link to the Kahoot we used.

Student Instructions

Students answer wrap up questions via Kahoot to reflect on process.
