Evaluating our project
We spent this lesson evaluating our designs. I have created guidelines to support this but we started the lesson writing on padlet things that we have done throughout this lesso, reflecting on the things that we found difficult and new materials we used.
We then looked at our starting point and where this has lead our artwork.
How we have changed our image and reflecting on the materials we have used.
Students then fed this back and we made bullet points of key elements that are non negotiable in our evaluations.
Students then had good groundwork to begin their evaluations. I marked these as they were done, extending responses and pushing students to evaluate and analyse decisions and processes. I was really impressed with the amount of subject terminology used, and was overjoyed when reading their reflections on the skills they have learned; and how much they have seen a development in their ability.
Pupils should be taught to develop their creativity and ideas, and increase proficiency in their execution. They should develop a critical understanding of artists, architects and designers, expressing reasoned judgements that can inform their own work.
