In this 10 page powerpoint lesson students trace over letters in magazines and try to create 3 levels of hierarchy or emphasis in their design. I compare it to a Shout, Speak and Whisper. Students learn about ways to create emphasis, including color, placement, movement and size. Great Art substitute lesson plan.
This is a quick lesson students love that delivers lasting meaning to the hierarchy of design. Included in the powerpoint are the big idea, a description of hierarchy, student examples, an anticipatory set movie (.flv format) that can be used if desired, and a separate student assessment.
