In this lesson the teachers and learners will use different active learning methods.
- Method 1
Delivery of this lesson will be done with minimum requirement that discussed in the following steps.
2.Generate ideas for making an exhibition
- Pupils learn t o present ideas to an audience;
- Pupils spread the messages they have learned to a wider audience and share what they have learned;
- Pupils work in a team and are proud of their creations.
Pupils think about the work and the message they would like to pass on to other people and what would be the
best way of doing so.
Step 1. Individually or in small groups, pupils pick the most important works they want people to see or hear.
Step 2. Pupils ask themselves these questions:
what is the goal of our exhibition?
who is our target audience?
what do we want to say and what is our best message?
how will we achieve our goal?
how will we reach our audience and get our message across?
Pupils develop a plan based on their answers to these questions.
Whatever the subject is, it should include the following aspects:
Encourage pupils to use the materials they have already produced and to be creative with materials they find
attractive and useful! Sympathetic visuals are extremely important in getting a message across to the public.
Visuals can include posters, banners, or even people-driven visuals (a short play, costumes, etc.). Pupils may
have learned other techniques in art classes. Encourage them to use all the ideas they have.
The art teacher in the school could be very helpful in this lesson; perhaps you can ask him/her to be
involved. The most important thing is: have fun, be creative – just get your work on show!
3.Prepare your presentations
- Pupils practice presentation skills and public speaking
Pupils prepare and practice a presentation of their work and its messages. Here are some tips for presenting:
Pupils prepare and practice a presentation of their work/message. Here are some presentation tips for pupils:
Prepare your presentation well, decide which items you think are most important and make a list, maybe even a
note that will help you during your presentation. If possible, start your presentation with something to attract
people’s attention: a joke, an anecdote or maybe a question.
The ‘tell, tell, tell principle’: repeat your message again and again!
Make sure you are no more involved with the material you show than what is in
your presentation itself.
Try to keep eye contact with your audience; try to keep them involved through eye contact and ask
them if they understand what you are talking about.
Especially when they have a question, repeat the question so the whole audience can hear; and
when you have answered the question, ask if it has been answered well.
Keep them involved.
Speak loud and clear!
Mind your posture; relax!
Ask for feedback, and if possible, plan a conversation at the end to have some interaction with your audience.
Repeat the main points of what you have been talking about and make a polite ending to your presentation.
