Lever 3 – Transparent Curriculum

Become a Creative Researcher

Most art projects start with a topic you are interested in or a question you want to answer. This sequence of four activities opens up discussion about how artists work, connecting to Lever 3 – Transparent Curriculum and touching on Lever 4 – Metacognition, to get students thinking about a range of different topics and interests.

By tapping into students’ interests, this expandable activity aims to address the lost time at school while rebuilding learner confidence. This gives students an opportunity to co-construct their own learning methods, conduct conversations around learning and re-establish relationships with their peers and teachers.
