Visual Art lessons:

Every lesson has a title and provides basic information about teaching artist, classroom teacher, and the grade level it was originally taught at.

The “HOOK” is the phrase that communicates the essence of what the lesson is all about.

Target learnings reflect what students will know and be able to do as outcomes of the lesson. Assessment criteria are the observable traits and dimensions, behaviors, or evidence in student work indicating that the student has achieved the target learning.

Vocabulary essential to the lesson is listed: A comprehensive visual art glossary can be found in the appendices of  Washington State Arts Learning Standards, Visual Arts (LINK)

Resources are any art, artists, events, books, videos, or community members that frame or inspire the learning experience for students.

A short narrative describes the Resources introduced and the creative process-- the steps and sequence of the lesson. Some of the lessons include Teaching artist comments that can illuminate the teaching process further.

Learning assessment strategies—often in the form of reflection questions—help students to reflect on their creative process and evaluate it in context of the target learnings for the lesson.

Washington State Arts Learning Standards that are addressed in the lesson are noted at the close of each lesson plan. For more information see http://www.k12.wa.us/Arts/Standards.

Washington State learning standards in other content areas such as Math, English Language Arts, Science or Social Studies and 21st century skills addressed in the lesson plan are noted as well.
