Final Project


Final Project from Amy Tapia

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a lovely thanksgiving and I hope no one was injured during that crazy black Friday deals.  For those of you that celebrate Hanukah, I hope it too is going well and you are enjoying the holidays.  I choose to opt out of black Friday because I wanted to sleep 🙂

I will remind you below of what I have selected for my final project and again thank you all for reading, it has been a great quarter with all of you, and I am sure this is only the start of our success. I will be adding on giving a taste of what great things are to come. This is only the beginning.

I selected option 2, and here are the details:

Option 2: Develop a Course Outline

  • In this option you will develop an outline for an entire online (or hybrid) course. You must include:
    • Topics and objectives for each session in the class.
    • Description of the technologies used in each session of the class.
    • Explain each technology in terms of one vs. two-way communication, media richness/social presence, and why the chosen technology would be appropriate for supporting the indicated interaction.
    • Identify which of the three types of interactions (student-content, student-instructor, and student-student) in an online class are supported by each technology.
    • Develop a description of the assessment/evaluation methods for each session of the class.

Art 395: Art in the Classroom (hybrid)

(This will be a revamp version of a ten week class that only met one day out of the week)
(Thank you to Professor Rosa Loughnane, she was my inspiration for this)

Week One:

  • Tuesday:
    • Course introduction
    • Introduction to creating a blog for the course for posting pictures of assignments, comments, homework, etc.
    • Start the Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, the purpose of this is to draw upside down.  You cover it up with another paper and slowly inch your way down the drawing.  Since we are working with the right side of our brain (the creative side) we want to avoid saying things like “oh this is an eye, this is an ear, etc.” these sayings prevent us from truly getting in touch with the artistic side we all have.

    • Thursday:
      • Post your Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain on your blog
      • Along with your post, (1) write what was least pleasant, (2) most fun, (3) how you would integrated into a classroom you are teaching or plan to teach, and comment to at least 3 of your peers’ posts.  I will be providing all their blog addresses so that you have them and you are able to make comments.
      • These blogs will be monitored by me, it is important to remember to provide positive feedback and if you have constructive criticism to improve upon their work.
      • Topics:
        • Introduction to the course
        • Introduction to the upside down image we will be drawing
        • Posting and commenting
      • Objectives:
        • Students will learn about art as a vital part of the K-12 classroom and the importance of its integration into the curriculum.
        • Students will learn the stages of making art: 1) idea/inspiration, 2) making process, and 3) reflection/interpretation.
        • Students will gain skills in art making using traditional and found/recycled materials.
        • Students will learn how to develop and teach FUN art lessons.
      • Description and explanation of technologies used:
        • Since this will be a hybrid course we are focusing on two-way communication as well as the social aspect of using our art blogs.
      • Interactions:
        • Since this will be a hybrid course we will be doing student-content (when the student is working on the art project and then posting it on their blog), student-instructor (when we meet face-to-face), and student-student (in terms of using their blogs as communication).
      • Description of assessment/evaluation:

Week Two:

Tuesday:o Speak about the collage we will be working in.

o Give the outlines, use only three colors like red, green, and purple or blue, red, and yellow, etc.
o Instruct that they will be using different forms of shading when using the three different colors.
o Example: photo2
o Not only shading but students will be working on incorporating different shapes/forms.
o A specific, if you shade one corner red and then red cannot touch the bottom, sides, top of it, it has to be a different color.
o Since it is a hybrid class, you want to show students different examples from previous classes so they have an idea of what to do.
o They will then tear the paper in different ways and re-connect it in an order that does not resemble what you started with.

o Example: photo3
o Students will be doing 3 of these pieces and posting them on their blog by Thursday.

Thursday:
o Post your Collages on your blog
o Along with your post, write what was shapes/forms you used, what was difficult about creating a collage, how you would integrated it into a classroom you are teaching or plan to teach, and comment to at least 2 of your peers’ posts. You should have received a list of all of your peers blog addresses but I will resend them one last time.
o These blogs will be monitored by me, it is important to remember to provide positive feedback and if you have constructive criticism to improve upon their work.
