The standards I have aligned my curriculum to are the following from the Speaking and Listening category of the Common Core Standards:
Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas:
Describe people, places, things, and events with relevant details, expressing ideas and feelings clearly.
Add drawings or other visual displays to descriptions when appropriate to clarify ideas, thoughts, and feelings.
By exploring digital art forms, creating their own, and presenting them to an audience my students will be expressing their ideas and feelings clearly. In addition to this, they will be allowed to add drawings, emojis, or create an image in found poetry. They also have the option to make a film or act out their poem to help clarify these ideas. Overall, my students will be describing and expressing their thoughts and feelings in new ways. When they present their project at our exhibition, they will be able to discuss their work. This will ensure that my students fully understand the purpose of the activities and their actions.
