Goal

To expose students to the artwork of Salvador Dalí...and to offer students a learning activity to engage in that exercises their minds if they get sent to my classroom for disciplinary reasons. 

 

What will be done with my students

1. Posters will be laminated and displayed in the classroom. Students will learn about Salvador Dalí in Spanish class. They will learn about his life, his artwork, and his heritage. They will learn about the local gem that is the museum in St. Petersburg. They will view an educational video and a power point about Dalí. They will also enjoy learning about his double-image paintings.

2. Students will be able to work on a jigsaw puzzle in my classroom if they finish assignments early or if they have a "time out" from another class for disciplinary reasons. This can actually soothe students that have difficulties calming down from intense situations and it has educational value. 

 

Benefits to my students

1. Create a visually pleasing classroom/learning environment.

2. Cultural enrichment

3. Art history, studio art lessons, and culture

4. Local ties to artist/museum in Pinellas County

5. Activities for students to do if they are disciplined and sent to my classroom that are calming/worthwhile to work the mind
