Lesson Plans

Name Description
Transforming Social Issues with Photo Transfer and Collage:

In this lesson, the students will create a mixed-media work of art that conveys a social issue by using carefully chosen photos, text, color and painted images. The students will use a photo transfer technique along with mixed media to create their art.

How to Bracket Your Exposures:

In this lesson, students will learn about bracketing.  Bracketing is shooting a series of three or more shots of the same scene at different levels of exposure- light to dark.  Bracketing is used in order to determine exactly how to expose your camera sensor for the best results. 

How to Use Camera Aperture:

In this lesson, students will learn about aperture using DSLR cameras.  Students will apply their knowledge of aperture to open and close the lens of the DSLR in order to allow more or less light into the camera, while learning about f-stop.  They will observe the differences between the aperture openings on the LCD screen of the DSLR camera.  They will apply knowledge of aperture to achieve a well-balanced, successful image, and use proper vocabulary to describe their experiments concerning working with aperture. 

Museum Exhibit Proposal: Examining American History from 1763 to 1815 through the Arts:

In examining American History from 1763 to 1815 students, working individually and collaboratively, research and create a proposed exhibit for the National Women’s History Museum. Delivered in three clearly articulated segments, this arts integrated lesson is scaffolded to set students up for success as they learn and demonstrate learning of the social studies content through artistic means and reflection. 

Atomic Theory:

The Purpose of the lesson is to teach the students about five major atomic theories using inquiry-based learning. By allowing the students to be introduced to the historical backgrounds and having each group to create a three dimensional figure and a poster, it allows the learning process to be student-driven, inductive and interactive.
