Lesson Plans

Podcasting in the Artroom:

Students will create podcasts to communicate about and analyze a body of work (or individual artwork) from a given artist.

Type: Lesson Plan

NASA Space Shuttle Mission Patches:

Students apply geometric measures and methods, art knowledge, contextual information, and utilize clear and coherent writing to analyze NASA space shuttle mission patches from both a mathematical design and visual arts perspective.

Model Eliciting Activities, MEAs, are open-ended, interdisciplinary problem-solving activities that are meant to reveal students’ thinking about the concepts embedded in realistic situations. Click here to learn more about MEAs and how they can transform your classroom.
