My Unit Plan

Students will research information regarding the Avant Garde Art movement period. They will determine the reason for each movement and how society & art were mutually influnced. Students will also theorize how society and art will be influnced in the future.

EQ: Does society influence people or do people influence society?
UQ: How does visual communication change through time?

CQ: Analyze the style/techniques used in each Avant Garde art movement.
Determine the cause & effect of each Avant Garde art movement.
Compare and contrast the relationship between art and history in each art movement.
Explore the risk and consequences of artists during the Avante Garde art period.
How did the Avant Garde art movement influence modern design?
Theorize what the focus of art/artists will be in the future.


  1. I really need to work on my questions. These are great. The essential question is catchy and makes you curious about what is coming next. You really have a handle on this idea.

  2. By reading your unit plan description, I am lead to believe that you are an Art Teacher. Are you on Art Teacher? Your questions seem to encourage higher level thinking.

  3. Your unit summary is excellent. I think it gives a concise summary and then you follow up with great essential, unit, and content questions. Keep up the good work.

  4. Overall, this seems to be well thought out. As we get into the projects, you will have to see if this one art movement will have enough substance to expand into a unit. Other ideas from other art forms might be necessary to give your students exposure to some of the methods in your software applications that you will need to teach. I am not seeing any of those process skills listed in your content questions.
