Re: New Art Position - for K- 8 part time
- Dear Art Educators,
Gina's position will be a K-8 school.
I recommended she repeat some of her successful lessons from this
year and build onto those.
Gina, as a first year teacher, you may want to do the same (or very
similar) project for K-1, similar for 2-3, similar for 4-5-6 (more
advanced for 6th) and similar for 7-8 (or add 6th to this
lesson).... something like that. You can vary the lesson somewhat to
make it more advanced for the higher grades.
You can select some key artists - and use them across the board if
you want. That way you don't need to hunt down visual resources for
all grades. Impressionism works for all levels.... Van Gogh....
O'Keeffe.... just to name a few.
Another idea is to get with the social studies teachers and work
interdisciplinary with them. Including some of the core content
standards may mean more money for you (if you also tie in math,
science too). I was able to get more money for visual resources when
they could be used to also teach the core subjects.
Gina, browse the ideas and lessons on Incredible Art Department...
ask questions about what grade level could handle them if you don't
You could organize lessons around specific countries.... Art could
be a Passport around the world....
There are so many right ways to organize your lessons. You need to
find a way you are comfortable with.
Is there a curriculum guide in place? If not - get a copy of the
