When the unit of Greece is explained in the first year or in Classical
Culture, an extension activity can be done based on the creation
of a poster about the art of sculpture. One in class explains
Greek sculpture and its three stages: archaic, classical and
Hellenistic with a single image. But with this activity, the students
expand their knowledge of sculpture and awaken their critical eye to
know which sculpture is from each period.
First of all, we give them the images of the Greek sculptures and the
instructions of what to do. The student will have to search the
internet with their mobiles for the information of the works to know
what period they are from. Likewise, they will have to select the
information to be put on the poster indicating centuries,
characteristics, authors and works. In this group work, you must
speak and write in English.
They have two days to prepare the poster. The students have to sign
a work plan to know the teacher what the students and their tasks
were committed to. An element that will be used in the assessment,
apart from observation in class.
Secondly, as an exercise at home, they can be instructed to choose a
sculpture from the period they want and to create a text and present it
with the Vocaroo recorder. In that recorded oral presentation they
must indicate the period, century, author, work and characteristic, apart
from giving a reason why they have chosen that work and not another.
To know how to record, they are also given instructions and told that
they have to present it in Teams.
