Thank you for all of your suggestions on making drums. I am a new member
to the Artsednet, and i am pleasantly surprised at the number of responses
i have received in just one day. I would love some more advice on the
lesson I am planning. Drum making is one aspect of this lesson. I am
mostly interested in raising the consciousness' of the third graders
regarding Native Americans' false representation in different forms of the
media, including TV, books, movies, and even history texts. Do you have
any suggestions that i can use to make these students relate to false
representation and stereotyping in their own lives? I am thinking along
the lines of showing the contrast between the outer appearance of, say, a
kiwi fruit and its beautiful interior. You wouldn't know how beautiful it
was from first introduction. Also, I was thinking of showing different
artists reactions to the same subject matter, a dog, for example.
Although I have these ideas I'm having a diffiucult time tying everything
together. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks!
