Included are bundled choice-based curriculums for the arts classroom in powerpoint format for easy modifications if applicable for Grades 2-8. The curriculum is based on teaching for artistic behavior, lending student ownership over their own ideas and media. This curriculum can be a guide for teaching and learning throughout the year. You can use this curriculum for every investigation for development of student independence and choice. This creates an authentic learning experience for students.
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. Lastly, I also suggest filling in a slide of station/centers where are materials go. This would be contextual based on the classroom and also require visual demonstrations. Also, if students don't have google accounts, you may remove the folder creation and sharing slide.
