WORKSHOP: MY RESOURCE

1. INFORMATION ABOUR THE PAINTING I HAVE CHOSEN.

        Title: Swaying Dancer (Dancer in Green)

        Author: Edgar Degas

        Floor and Room: Room 33

2. DRAWING NOTES.

  • I see a group of ballet dancers.
  • In the background, the ballet dancers dressed in orange are waiting their turn to dance.
  • The ballet dancers dressed in green are making complicated turns while dancing, according to the position of their bodies.
  • Hobbies and free time activities.
  • The selected painting suits with my students interest and needs for two main reasons. On one hand, they are going to talk about activities that they like doing (they will be motivated to talk about their hobbies); and on the other hand, the final product will be a "poster painting" and they love this type of tasks.

3. DESCRIBE THE RESOURCE.

         Main theme:

  • Subject: English Language.
  • Grade: Third Grade (Primary)
  • School context: Medium-low socioeconomic environment. 
  • English topic: Hobbies and Free Time Activities.
  • Grammar structure I like ...+ing

         Final product: Poster painting about their hobbies or favorite free time activities.

         Materials: Cardboards, pencils, rubbers, crayons, felt pens, glue, scissors and different     types of papers (magazines, newspapers, tissue papers...)

         Description of the process:

  1. Whole class activity: Everybody sits down on a circle and looking to the selected painting. We will start with a brainstorming answering the teachers questions (What are they doing? Where are they? How are they? Do you think they feel happy? What are they wearing?)
  2. Pair activity: I will group my students in pair and they have to practice this short dialogue A: What do you like doing? B: I like ............ My objective here is they learn and acquire the grammar structure in a natural way.
  3. Individual work: They have to draw a rough draft about his/her hobby (the hobby they told the partner in the previous dialogue). They have to think as well the materials they want to use in the final product (the poster painting about his/her hobby)
  4. Individual work: Draw the poster painting about his/her hobby using the selected materials.
  5. Whole class activity: Every student will introduce their poster to the class. It is very important to remind them to use the structure I like .....
  6. Whole class activity: Students (with the teacher´s help) will hang on the posters on the school hall. This "exposition" of his/her painting posters will motivate the students.

FEEDBACK OF THE COURSE

Taking into consideration the complicated and hard situation that we are leaving nowadays (pandemia and state of emergency) I think the house has adapted quite well to the on line modality. I appreciate the great  effort of teachers in the tasks and resources proposed. I think the on line modality has offered a lot of possibilities to bring the museum to our teaching practices and our real classrooms. Exploring the museum through virtual tour has increased my desire to visit the real museum again, so I am looking forward to visiting the Thyssen Museum as soon as possible.

Title of the painting: Autumn

Author: F.Edwin Church  (Pintura Norteamericana S XIX)

Church was established in the 1950 as the great American landscaper.

I  see the atmosphere, the misty and warm light in the background and the changes of colour.

The vegetation presents a gradation from green to red that is reflected in the waters of the 

river.When I saw this painting  for the first time, I enjoyed a lot because it reminds me the

beginning  of the new season, after the wonderful light of summer.

I feel melancholy that seems to invade us with the arrival of this season.The reduction of light 

and the change of weather influences the behaviur.When the summer ends, the free time

and "the wonderful life" ends to and  it´s difficult to begin he routine again.

I feel  serenity and reflection when I see the picture.The variety of colours are fantastic.

This painter transmits me the real beauty of the autumn.I think that he´s "fascinated"

with this season and  it´s  one of my favourite paintings  of the Thyssen Museum.

4th Session.

Thank you very much for this wonderful course.I´ve joined a lot with the virtual visit to the museum and the wonderful  stories based on the pictures in the museum.I´d like to be involved in the development of  some projects with more teachers.The material you´ve prepared has been very useful and ,at the same time, a fantastic way to motivate us in the knowledge of many contents.The story of "Alice in wonderland" in combination of some pictures of the museum is fabolous.Thank you again for all the descriptions and cultural aspects of the pictures.Thank you again for all the things.

Sonia Delaunay 

Vestidos simultáneos 

https://www.museothyssen.org/coleccion/artistas/delaunay-sonia/vestidos-simultaneos-tres-mujeres-formas-colores

The paint represents three women really closed to each other and vey different at the same time, the key point of the picture are the dresses, which are really diverse. Trough the use of colors, lines and geometrical shapes different types of women the artist gets us into her own world of movement and color.

In my opinion, through the painting Sonia Delaunay identifies and represents the importance of women in the artistic, cultural and social environments, not very considered at that time. 

The painting transmits a big idea of movement, energy and colour. What makes me think about how Sonia could be, having a great amount of projects and ideas, making them real but not only through paint, but also though clothes, cars or furniture.

1-Why the museum is so important for schools?

Museums are centers of learning and they have evolved through the years.I think that they are public places where the students can learn a lot   through guided discovery, observation and manipulation.Visiting them fosters cultural identity.Students feel motivated and exciting (most of them) when they go with schoolmates and they have a wonderful experience most of the times.The Ministery of education has published a planning guide for the creation of educational and cultural programs in museums.

2-.Would you like to be part of a community of practice for the improvement,research and innovation in the bilingual education?

Of course I`d like to be part of this community.I´d like to develop a project, at the beginning of the course, programming three visits to different museums.I´d like to  involve my students in the importance of the museums , as institutions that conserve a collection of objects of artistic,cultural, historical or scientific importance.Students have to know and value these institutions.I´d like to know more teachers interested in the developing of activities integrating the museums in the school.

Homer, Winslow: Beach Scene (1869). Oil on Canvas.

As the title of the painting itself suggests, I can see a beach scene where children are playing with the sea water. The information provided by the museum explains how the composition is structured through three broad and horizontal bands of almost identical size. On the closer one, I can see the reflection of the children on the wet sand, making the image feels real; in the middle band, the sea with children playing in the seaside, stormy water and some waves, as well as two tiny white points (sailing boats perhaps); and in the further one, I observe a blue sky with some clouds. 

I have a mixture of feelings looking at the picture: hope, optimist and nostalgia. I have chosen this painting for a sentimental reason: I am from a coast city, Malaga, so now that I'm living in Madrid, breathing the sea breeze is one of the things I miss more. Furthermore, the children playing in the seaside remind me those summer days when I was little and I spent hours and hours with my cousins and friends at the beach playing with the sand and the sea. Perhaps, the state of emergency that we are living nowadays where we are confined at home, so I can not escape to the coast, has something to do with my picture choice. But as I said before, looking at Beach Scene bring me hope and optimist, because this hard time will pass and I will feel the smell of the sea breeze again.

Thank you for your answer, Ana. I agree with you that landscapes are powerful triggers for memories and nostalgia because they play an important role in the process of identity formation. For example, my identity as a Galician expat is deeply connected to the landscapes of my childhood, filled with green hills, leafy forests and the endless ocean, and  whenever I see a painting by Urbano Lugris (Vista da Coruña, 1959), I am instantly drawn back to those places. 

In case you are interested, I would like to share with you a publication that has just come out featuring some of the activities Ángeles and I implemented in our Spanish Composition Through Art course at CSUSB. These activities were designed to help our students connect emotionally with some of the museum's paintings while perfecting their writing skills. I hope you find them inspiring!

¿Why the museum is important for schools?

Museums are a perfect places to deal with different contents in the curriculum and deal with them through art. Is so important to learn in different and real spaces and to make the students integrate the contents and appreciate all the opportunities and servicies around the community. 

Art is one of the most damaged areas in the educational laws, and one of the most important developing critical thinking, that´s  why in mi opinion museums are a really good way to maintain and support education and cultural awareness, 

¿Would you like to be part of a community of practice for the improvement, research and innovation in the bilingual education? ¿What is your idea?

Of course, I would love to be part of the community for improving both of us, the museum and the teachers. Having the opportunnity to interact in different ways, could be created a good relationship.

Hi Beatriz,

Thank you for your answer. If you really find interesting to be part of teacher’s community, you will surely like to know about our project called Musaraña. Although it is not a community focused on bilingual education, It is a growing community of teachers in which we organize many events for free.  We all together learn artistic methodologies for teaching and share our experiences. Feel free to browse all the resources generated in the web space created specifically for the Musaraña community:

WORKSHOP MY RESOURCE

  • TITLE: "The Card Game"
  • AUTHOR: Balthus
  • FLOOR & ROOM: Room 47
  • MY DRAWING NOTES: 

- A boy and a girl playing cards at a table. The boy is trying to cheat.

- There is a candlestick in a simple and dark room.

- Geometry.

- I believe this painting suits my students' needs and interests on the one hand because as I wrote in the reflection they are totally motivated by activities where they are involved, especially games, and even more if they are realted to aspects of real life. On the other hand, in this activity they would be able to aquire vocabulary and develop grammar, their speaking and interaction and creativity.

  • MAIN THEME: The theme of cheating and the game.
  • TYPE OF RESOURCE (FINAL PRODUCT): Creation of a cards game.
  • MATERIALS NEEDED: cardboards, pencils, felt pens and scissors.
  • DESCRIBE THE PROCESS TO YOUR STUDENTS:
  1. Students will be grouped in pairs.
  2. In pairs, students will have to create their own deck of cards. In order to do so, geometric shapes must have been studied so pupils know what a rectangle is. The dimensions of the rectangle will be previously establishedso each pair will measure on the cardboard and cut them out. In addition, they will make up and draw a new suit different from the traiditional ones such as cups, swords, etc so they must be related and original.
  3. Finally, every pair will think about a cards game and write down the rules in English. Then, they will read them aloud so the rest of classmates must guess the name of the game. Afterwards, pairs will be switched and they will play one game for a while!

In conclusion, as a brief feedback about the course, obviously it has been a pity the inconvenient to make it online because of the main charm of it was the fact of going to the museum, appreciating the collection and getting involved in something more dynamic. However, it is worth mentiong the capacity and great effort of the teachers to turn it into this modality without losing the interest and quality. This way I have had the chance to explore a lot the museum media ressource and learnt deeply about a lot of the paintings. In special, I would highlight the activity of choosing a selection of paintings in order to carry out a storytelling tour. Thank you very much for this experience and your participation, I would absolutely recommend it!

Hi Esther,

Thank you very much! You are the first person to finish the course. Congratulations! I really like your proposal. It can be very interesting for students to think about the rules of games by writing their own rules and creating their own card game. If you ever get to realize this idea with your group of students, you don’t hesitate to send us photos of the result. We can publish it on our educathyssen website, surely your students will like it. Thank you for completing the course and for leaving your opinion in these comments.

I hope to see you again.

Best regards,

Ángeles.
