Introduction

Part of learning about [art | literature | music | etc.] is developing an understanding of the styles used in that art form. One way to do that is to make it your own by temporarily becoming a particular artist, seeing the world through their eyes. Grab your [beret | quill pen | camera | etc. ] and let's get stylish!

Task

At the end of this unit, you will have created a [ work of art ] never before seen by human (or other) eyes. If you do it well, it will be just like one created by [artist or category of artist]. To get there, though, you'll have to get into his/her skin.

Process

  1. First, examine these links describing what style is in general. [links]
  2. Now, explore these examples of the style of [x]. The links are organized in groups of three, with two examples of style [x] and one of some other style. Working independently, examine each group of three and answer the question: what do the two examples of [x] have in common that is not apparent in the other example. For each group of three you might discover anywhere from 1 to 5 differences.
  3. When you have completed your first examination, get together with two others and compare your notes. Work together to come up with a common list of the critical elements that distinguish style [x] from the rest.
  4. We'll compare the group lists as a whole class activity. Modify your lists as needed based on class discussion.
  5. Now, begin to create your own example of style [x], [provide advice here about topic, scope, milestones, etc. ]
  6. We'll have a showcase at the end of the unit in which you will [read | display | perform | etc. } your creation and explain the ways in which it exemplifies style [x].

    Evaluation

    Describe to the learners how their performance will be evaluated. Specify whether there will be a common grade for group work vs. individual grades. You may want to have separate rubrics for individual and group work.
