3. STUDENTS WHO DID EXCEPTIONALLY WELL {answered MOST questions correctly=5 Students}

3.1. Allow students who know the material very well to work in groups with their friends, and help explain visual concepts. I find that students are really willing to help explain things in their own terms to their peers, and it gives a great boost of confidence.

3.2. Allow students to voice their opinion about their own taste in Art works, so they can develop their own curiosity and interesting in Visual Language. Give one on one feedback to help guide students in a direction they might be interested in.


4.1. Provide one on one instruction, where you can provide feedback to the students questions.

4.2. Using a projector, project the images you are discussing in your unit and point out the visual characteristics in the image.

4.3. Allow students to work in a group and rely on each other to for support in understanding visual concepts. At times Students are able to communicate better amongst their peers.

4.4. Take visual images from life, not necessarily art works and explain the same visual concepts. This may allow students to experience a different perspective and develop a deeper understanding.

4.5. Use multiple formative Assessments that can be verbal checks for understanding, or by collecting all projects in the middle of the unit and leaving sticky note comments for the students to read.
