A number of my students are English Language Learners. I have had student in the past who understand no English at all, until they are in this school for more than 6 months, and still often struggle with certain less concrete concepts. Students who are learning a new language are often struggling to understand the given verbal or written instructions, which goes along with the demonstration. Demonstration alone is not enough to help students understand and learn the concepts in the unit, which are based on the National Art Standards. This translator will not only make instructions and learning easier, but may facilitate a quicker understanding of the spoken word as it is used for immediate translation. The project students ( who are English Language Learners), struggle most with is the study of the language of Art. This includes the vocabulary, more specifically the Elements and Principles of Design. On this project students must not only draw the title word and define it, but must also understand the definitions well enough to illustrate them. You will find part of the instructions below. Art ABC Project In our study of art appreciation, we will complete a project instead of taking a test. This project will show the vocabulary of art, meaning the Elements and Principles, with titles, definitions and illustrations. You will follow the pattern of the Alphabet to organize and present your information. You will use one piece of poster paper that will be supplied to you and then present your project to the class. You will have a minimum of 26 facts on your project, one for each letter of the alphabet. All information presented must be related to the assigned topic. Each fact will be in its own box and must also have a drawing for each word.
