Interdisciplinary Lesson Ideas


SOCIAL STUDIES OBJECTIVES:

  1. Students learn that the political and social history of Mexico was much affected by a revolution early in the twentieth century. (A lesson with this objective would integrate well with issues raised in Lesson Two Printmaking and Mural Options.)

  2. Students learn that in the 1960s and 1970s Mexican Americans began the Chicano Movement as a political force. (A lesson with this objective would integrate well with Lesson Two Printmaking and Mural Options.)

TECHNOLOGY OBJECTIVE:

  1. Students learn how to use inquiry questions to guide their own learning on the internet. (A lesson with this objective would integrate well with lesson one, as well as with lesson eight.)

MATHEMATICS OBJECTIVE:

  1. Students learn how to calculate ratios and proportions. (A lesson with this objective would integrate well with grid making in lesson two or in the mural making option of lesson five.)

LANGUAGE ARTS OBJECTIVE:

  1. Students learn how to write descriptions and interpretations. (This objective would integrate well with the optional symbol interpretation lesson in lesson three, as well as with lesson six.)

  2. Students learn how to organize internal (in artworks) and external (outside artworks) evidence to support their interpretive conclusions. (A lesson with this objective would integrate well with lesson one, as well as with lesson six.)

  3. Students learn how to argue for a philosophical position. (A lesson with this objective would integrate well with lesson seven.)

  4. Students learn how to organize their ideas orally and in writing. (A lesson with this focus would integrate well with the optional writing activities in lessons seven and eight.)
