Every year I struggle with the idea of how to get students to "think outside the box". As a teacher how do you ask the right questions, create the right brainstorming activities to guide students to being able to have original thought.
This year I will teach a new lesson on sculpture in the round. My 9th Graders will create a sculpture of a pet, or animal of their choosing, learn how to sculpt it realistically, and then transform it by adding whimsical characteristics. With the help of various Web 2.0 tools I hope to get the students on the right track to make some great Sculptures. I have shared a few links below of activities I am using. Feel free to participate in the scavenger hunt or add to the Padlet wall. These are just copies of the materials I will use for my class.
Hi, I'm Lauren Keifer, or Mrs. Keifer as my students know me. I am at the Spring-Ford School District 9th grade center where I teach Intro to Digital Art and Ceramics.
