I am subsitute teacher (recent PGCE graduate) and have been given my first class group and the students current theme is OPENINGS with a Yr 10 Art GCSE. The students current topic is ‘Openings’. So as not to disturb the students week to week curriculum. I have to introduce a 3Omin lesson on the theme OPENINGS. I will show a quick ppt on the idea of mindmapping and brainstorming but from there onwards what activity will be a nice break in for the class to explore Openings Does anyone have any major ideas what area to explore in the word OPENINGS....eg opening of shops/galleries/...looking at the word and its process... cracks/holes/open spaces...interiors/exteriors...the outsoors...seasons...day and night...sky and sea...any ideas ?? Thank you for your time and any ideas for a new teacher!
