Included are bundled choice- art project directions for the arts classroom in powerpoint format for easy modifications if applicable for Grade 8. This resource can be a guide for teaching and learning throughout the year. You can use this for every investigation for development of student independence and choice.
Questions, mind mapping, researching worksheets, and final artwork plans are differentiated based on this grade level. Included are instructions for mind mapping, sketching, questions of inquiry, researching worksheets (students can fill in on google docs/print if that is unavailable and put inside sketchbook), critique, artist statement guide, and exhibition photographs. If students chose to work in partners/groups collaboratively, they need to complete all processes together.
If there is no access to computers for researching artists, a modification can be to use books instead. Also, if students don't have google accounts, you may remove the folder creation and sharing slide.
