Thinking & Reasoning
Learn about the Gothic period and complete an assignment about the Gothic period.
1. Gothic power point presentation.
2. Gothic outline.
Students will find Gothic influences in modern day furniture and architecture.
1. Hand out the Gothic outline to the students.
2. As you review the information from the power point presentation, have students write down the information on their outline from the presentation. (I try to do a lot of study before I begin the lecture, so I add other information about what I have researched to this lecture.)
3. When lecture is completed, I have the students start on the sketching assignment. Students will sketch a chair from the Gothic time period. (They must not copy, but do their best to sketch!) To this, they will also look in magazines to find a pictures of a piece of furniture or architectural detail that might have been influenced by the time period. For example, students could find a picture of a gothic shaped archway in a bedroom. For their description of the picture, they could say that this bedroom was influenced by the Gothic period because of it's use of gothic shaped arches. Then they will need to be able to recognize a picture of a Gothic cathedral such as Notre Dame for a test. My students are expected to turn this assignment in for grading, then they create a portfolio out of all of the history we have talked about in class.
