[teacherartexchange] 7-minute teach


Date: Tue Jun 14 2005 - 11:37:51 PDT

Hi guys,
I'm taking an instructional strategies class this semester, and part of the class involves 7 minute lab teaches. I just did my first one a week ago and did fine, but my teach for next Monday is more complicated. I have seven minutes to do a lesson. In this lesson, I must do a set, an explanation, six questions at each of the levels of Bloom's taxonomy, and then a closure. I was thinking that art critique would be perfect for the questions, but I'm trying to figure out what to teach before the critique. Since I'll only have a few minutes to actually explain something, I don't know if I should try to run through the elements of art and principles of design and then ask the students (my classmates) to apply those to a work of art. Or should I explain how to view a work of art: description, analysis, interpretation, background info and judgment? The problem with that is that I'll be assuming that they already knowt he elements and principles. Any ideas? The 7 minutes limit is really making this diffic
ult. I also thought about talking about ready-mades and then showing them one and asking them some questions and finally their opinion, is this art? Thanks!
