Welcome to day 2!

Standard:

  • ELAGSE9-10SL4 Present information, findings, and supporting evidence clearly, concisely, and logically such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, substance, and style are appropriate to purpose, audience, and task.

Learning Target: I will illustrate my initials to symbolically represent myself and present my artwork to the class.

Opening Session: Daily video! A little John Green Mental Floss to get your day started 🙂

Work Session: Welcome back to World Literature, day 2! Today we’re going to start out with finishing up our letters of introduction that we began writing yesterday. As you finish, come turn them into the basket at the front of the room. When everyone is done, we’ll get started on our next assignment! This one is an art project, and we’re going to use them to decorate the room!

Illuminated Initials

You will create a visual image of your initials.  You may not use any words or symbols.  What you use to illustrate your initials should tell us a little about who you are and what is important to you.  You will present your initials to the class, so make sure that you know what each part of your initials means. You may use various colors, designs, shapes, patterns, or drawings to create your initials. Check out my example on the board!

You’ll draw your initials on regular printer paper, and I’ll bust out the art supplies so you can add a little color if you want. I actually really like art projects, and we will probably do quite a few, so go ahead and get ready to color 🙂

We will also take a few minutes in class to take a little quiz called a Learning Styles Inventory which is used to determine if you’re a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic (aka hands-on) learner.

Honors: You will also write a paragraph on the back of your initials explaining why you chose to decorate them in the way you did. You’ll share this paragraph with the class as we go around the room for our closing session.

Closing Session: Share out! Stand up at your desk (this isn’t like a formal presentation or anything) and show off your illuminated initials, and tell us why you chose to draw/color them the way you did.

Assessment: Letters of introduction will be graded

Differentiation: Learning style (visual/kinesthetic art project); product (paragraph added for honors students; letter templates provided as needed)
