Art educators living, working or interested in Asia
Does anyone have some handouts or visuals for IB Art Students to help them to understand the criteria? Here is one I just made up for the sketchbook criteria. Any comments will be very welcome.
I have been off with the workload and not focused on the Ning site recently so have found your doc here as really good and student friendly. You do good stuff for your students Kendra!!
Speaking of Pinterest - I just started this board of little 'cheat sheets' for the students to stick into their IWBs. A few of these I've printed out for them, but now that I've got my IB students 'pinning', I might get them to make their own 'IWB inserts' boards.
This is my picture version of the IWB criteria which is printed on a wall in the Art room. I have stickers printed that match them that pupils can stick on their pages. Pupils also cut and paste pages from their IWB into the PPT and make short presentations to the class explaining how they have fulfilled the criteria. This website is wonderful, thank you Kendra!
Most of my students come to IB art with no prior art experience. I find I have to lead them through a project hitting on all the criteria one by one. This project/handout would work well to get a new group started, but I would have to stop and present how to respond to other artist works - using Brian's FTC model now - and would have to go step by step with them to help them understand each of the criteria. What is the timeframe for this portrait project Kendra?
The rubric you published is student friendly, quite useful I think, compared to the ones using the IB language only.
By this time of year in first year IB, I have them working from their own project ideas/themes. However, I'm not seeing the level of thinking that will hit the higher markbands. How do others handle the student directed vs teacher directed work in IB?
