VISUAL ARTS : Middle School Visual Arts Unit - "Mask-erade"
This resource is designed for Visual Arts students in the Middle School. The unit includes lessons on African Masks, Masks in Theatre and Egyptian Masks. This unit also includes many different creating activities that are both drawing and clay making.
Each lesson includes reading strategies from the Super Six— Making Connections, Predicting, Questioning, Monitoring, Visualising and Summarising. There are learning activities to help increase the literacy skills of your students while they learn about different types of masks, clay building techniques and vocabulary specific to clay building.
To accompany each of the Lessons there are either a set of guided art analysis questions OR a P.E.E.L. paragraph writing strategy with a focus on one of the Elements of Art.
In this resource the pages are deliberately doubled—one coloured version for classroom use on an interactive whiteboard, and a printable version. For my own classes I have enough copies of the printable version for the students to share one between two. Students then write into their workbooks/Art Diaries OR you could copy and hand out the worksheets that accompany each lesson—the choice is yours.
For the classroom version, I have included screencasts for the Art Making activities—sorry but you will hear my very Aussie accent!!!! I usually incorporate links to music using youtube OR an MP3 file that is to be played while students are working. For copyright reasons I cannot include the listening examples I use—but they are easily inserted into the PDF file. To do this go to Tools—Insert Media OR Link—draw a box on the PDF where you want it—browse file or insert link. When doing this I save the file after each new addition but check it first!!! That way you don’t end up with the wrong files in there.
