One of my goals for this school year is to improve my higher level questions and my essential questions for each lesson. To do this I have been studying blooms taxonomy to help me prepare questions for each of my lessons. I found this great link on Incredible Art Department that breaks down Blooms for art teachers...very helpful.
The essential questions for the Autumn landscapes project are:
How do artists portray space and time?
How do we create a landscape image?
I think writing essential questions are a real art form of their own.
