Congratulations to Elizabeth Dunn for being an outstanding Art Collector!
ArtsConnectEd is pleased to award an iPad to Dunn for her entry to the fourth iPad Challenge, “It’s about Choice”. Dunn's creation is titled "WORK in North America
" and demonstrates how an Art Collector Set can be used to engage students in the process of making choices.
In presentation mode, Dunn's Set displays images of laborers and workers from different times and places across the North American continent. The images are launching points for intermediate students' conversation, analysis, and writing. To unpack and implement this excellent resource in your classroom, be sure to download Dunn's well-designed, thorough attachments. There are four of them—a lesson plan (including detailed references to the Minnesota Academic Standards), and three activity sheets for students to use in the classroom. Lastly, Dunn demonstrates an ability to teach in a cross-disciplinary style, using works of art to teach Social Studies, all the while weaving in opportunties to address the formal elements and communicative power of art.
Thanks to Dunn for developing this outstanding resource and sharing it with the ArtsConnectEd Community!
And thanks to all who entered the iPad Challenge #4!
