Rather than making a boring old powerpoint about art that I present to them, I'm gonna have the students running around the classroom frantically writing and shouting and what carrying on.

Here is a Running Dictation for Lesson 5: The Father of Video Art.

My third grade classes are divided by level, so I've scaled things down for the beginners and cranked them up for the advanced class. Truth be told the advanced paragraphs might be a bit too long and difficult, but I'll test that out and possibly substitute the intermediate (medium-difficulty) paragraphs.

Commercials as Video Art

My students are very low level. Since it has been getting warmer and the students seem to hate air conditioning, they have been getting sleepy as well. They love visual aids and stay awake for that at least. Since I had so many advertising videos for my second year students I decided to make a quick to prepare class for my third years.

Make sure to explain the part from page 50 in the book.
Did you find it __________? Why or Why not?

You could add videos, take them away, whatever. It has been successful in my class and probed discussion among students that are usually pretty quiet. Good luck!

aklimkewicz, how long did you spend on the running dictation? I'm in an all boy's middle school and I'm not sure they'll be willing to get up out of their seats for this - were your class keen?

With the intermediate level (and my best coteacher) I was able to do the activity for 15 minutes. My beginner level coteacher only wanted the student to do one in each group, but I haggled her up to three. That took about 10 minutes. Explaining how to do it is a bit of extra time as well, and then I reviewed what they'd read by writing

TV
Ear
Portrait -- people's faces
Cubism

and crappily drawn Pollack-esque scribbles on the board. They had to identify which artist it was connected to and anything else they could tell me about the artist.

Unfortunately I'm missing my advanced classes (tomorrow) this week, which is a shame because they showed me how well a running dictation could really work. With some of the weaker classes I had students with their papers standing next to the posters writing while their partners read to them. Honestly I didn't really mind this at all, since they were much more active than usual.

Give your students a chance Springfield, and introduce a competitive element (fastest group or group with least mistakes gets a prize) and I bet that they will participate.

For my second lesson I taped up some printed out paintings and turned the classroom into a gallery. I had the students go around the room and admire each one and use a vocabulary word to describe what each looked like. Attached are the worksheet I used as well as 2 ppts. The smaller file (with 10 slides) I printed out and hung up. The larger file has 30 slides (graciously stolen from elsewhere off Waygook) that I used at the end of the lesson to review the vocabulary.

My students also really enjoyed the Ilana Yahav sand art videos (see post below) that I used as a warm up and time-filling closer. There are several different versions on YouTube, so you can play different ones and escape the tedium of watching the same video over and over again.

I found this chapter hard to teach, especially since the two Listen & Speak sections really have nothing to do with one another (but that's the section I'm responsible for).

For the first lesson, I decided to work with L&S 2 "Did you find it..."  Go through a presentation on the key expression, introduce some new vocabulary words, and teach them how to describe people.  The presentation is a combination of other PPTs on Waygook - thanks to the original creators for their hard work!

Then I have the students produce their own artwork.  My students typically respond well to this, but there are always a few who don't participate.  Your results may vary.  It may be a bit too childish for more mature 3rd graders, but that hasn't been the case for my classes, even the more advanced ones.  Make sure the students know that their work will be displayed; that usually gets most of them to participate at least.

The Guess Who Descriptions file has 5 separate handouts with descriptions of people and characters that the students should know.  Feel free to change the descriptions or the people as you see fit.  Then have the students present their drawings and answer the question "Guess Who?"

I finish the class by showing a few videos of different art styles, such as Burger Art, Sand Art, 3D Chalk Art, etc.  The students really enjoy videos, and a replica of the Mona Lisa made entirely out of hamburger grease really got them interested.  Swap out videos if you want.

I embed my videos directly off my USB into the PPTs...here are the links to the videos:

Re: Lesson 5: The Father of Video Art Commercials

Thanks for the nice idea, Firbus.

The commercial as video art idea has worked pretty well for my classes. I thought I'd share the PPT I made with that idea in mind.

I changed a couple of the commercials Firbus selected, but kept the majority. I'll include my modified version of Firbus' worksheet, as well.

I tend to overdo it when it comes to material. Teaching the lesson as is, you'll almost certainly not get through the 7 commercials on the worksheet let alone  move onto the additional ones.

 I jumped around with the commercials to give the students enough time to do the (very slightly) freer exercise of writing their opinions about the last commercials. I did it by allowing them to choose which commercials they watched based on the product.

Still, if you just teach the worksheet and stick with those commercials, the students should get a decent amount of practice done with the target language.

This is the 2nd lesson for Chapter 5, Listen & Speak 1.

Start out the lesson by doing L&S 1 from the book.  My kids hate the bookwork, but my co-teachers and school want me to do it, so I figured get it out of the way first.  Besides, responses to "thank you" can only take so much time, and it's nearly impossible to build an entire 45min lesson out of.  I solicit responses from the students, asking them if they heard any replies to "thank you" from the CD dialog.

Continue with the PPT, giving the students various ways to reply to "thank you."  I have them repeat each example twice.  Praise any students that give you a response that isn't listed.

If you used my Part 1 lesson posted above, than you shouldn't have to spend too much time explaining Reverse Guess Who.  I selected 10 people I thought the students should know, but change them if you want (some of my students had a hard time with Bane and Darth Vader...some didn't know who they were at all).  Have them write five sentences describing the picture, and then each team reads their descriptions to the class, who have to guess who.  Groups of four are best.  You can do two rounds with all ten characters for smaller classes.

Finish with Pass the Pencil.  I've had good success with this activity, even with lower level classes.  They like the music and the animation, and can really get into it sometimes.  I included the audio file for Pass the Pencil; just make sure it is saved in the same directory as your presentation and it should play fine.

Great work Pjblake! Great intro PPT. Thank you very much.

I majored in art so I'm actually really excited about this lesson (potentially).

Lesson 1: Pjblake's lesson material.

Lesson 2: Presentation of a handful of artists and their most famous works of art. Divide students into groups of 3 or four and have them choose an artist  to write a report and recreate one of the artist's famous works. Things to include in the report: (Lifespan of the artist, where did they live?, dates of at least 3 art pieces, what do you think about the artist (e.g., his life, his work, etc.) Provide a report template that students can use when handwriting the report. Students can use the remaining class time to research their artist and write their report.

Lesson 3: Teacher will correct reports and return to students for them to re-write. Students can work on their artist posters.

Lesson 4: Presentation of artists and lesson wrap-up (I'll probably create a review game for chapter 4 and 5).

I put together a quick ppt. on 'Art or Not Art?' which is a game that will last about 5-10 minutes. Students have to guess if each slide is 'Art' or 'Not Art'- meaning is it created by an artist or is it just a picture of something i've pulled from the internet. It's quite good at getting them off their seats (i had a corner of the room dedicated to each choice and they had to move to the side of the room they believed was right) and they couldn't believe what was classed as 'Art' these days. At the end there is a slide with some words to describe Art in English and Hanguel. Also find attached a blank dialogue of the conversation on page 79 of the chapter, i made it so they could come up with different variations of the 'let me help you-thanks-don't mention it' speech. Best to open it in Word if you have it.
Hope this helps somebody!
