Teacher_________________ Date/Time of the Lesson______________________
Title of Lesson__Analogous Art________ Subject/Topic__Art, English,_____________
1. Objectives: Address what students will be able to do after this lesson. This section should address what the learners will do/know and not what the teacher will do.
Students will understand what an analogy is and be able to come up with their own analogy.
Students will create a piece of art using an analogous color scheme and representing both sides of an analogy.
2. Materials/Where located:
1. Tempera Paint ( a variety of colors )
4. Water cups
3. Procedures: Include what you will say/do. List directions for activities and transitions. Provide an anticipated time frame for each activity/transition. You also need to anticipate the ways in which you might need to extend or adapt your lesson and have alternate materials, activities, etc. prepared.
1. Students will be re-introduced to analogies The teacher will give examples of analogies and ask for student responses. (Dog is to puppy as cat is to _________ etc.)
2. Next, after reviewing analogies, students will be asked to come up with their own creative analogy.
3. After students have come up with their own analogy, they will learn about analogous colors. Like analogies, analogous colors share a feature. Analogous colors are colors located next to eachother on the color wheel that share the same temperature (emotive) qualities. (yellow, yellow-orange, orange)
4. Students will then be asked to come up with their own analogous color schemes.
5. Finally, students will be introduced to their project. Students will create a painting representing all four aspects of their analogies in an analogous color scheme. (Ex. “He took to the bike like a duck to water” The student would have to incorporate a duck, water, a bike and a boy into an image together.)
6. The following day, after the paintings are completed, students will participate in a critique in which they will try to guess each others analogies, and explain what analogy they chose.
4. Check for Understanding: Provide a brief plan on how you will determine what your students have learned and how you will identify areas or concepts which need further clarification and explanation.
1. Students will be evaluated on their initial analogies. The teacher will be sure that there is a relationship between the things being compared and that they are similar.
2. Students will be assessed on their use of an analogous color scheme in their painting.
3. Students will be assessed on the representation of their analogy through their painting.
4. Students will be evaluated on their participation in the class critique.
