Read through the paragraphs below. These are 'Statements of Intent'.
What do you think the purpose behind them is?
You are learning how to write a statement of intent and why it is important for the examiner to see it first!
Why is it important?
One of the sentences in the marking criteria is about the student 'meeting their intentions'. Did you do what you set out to do at the start of the project? By making it really clear what they were at the start, we can help the examiner to say yes you did!
To be successful, you will:
Download the file below. You will work on a word document this lesson then copy and paste your paragraphs to your website at the end of the lesson.
Swap places with someone - give them feedback by reading their statements, then highlighting appropriate medals and missions.
You then have the rest of the lesson to respond to your missions in purple.
Finish off your statements if you didn't get to finish them in the lesson: Due next lesson.
You are learning how to refine your ideas further in response to feedback.
Experiment independently with alternative ideas and techniques, working through your checklists.
At the end of the lesson, reflect on whether you met your target, and set yourself a target for next lesson.
Going for gold: What could you do for homework or in your study periods??
Read your feedback on your most recent experiments.
You are going to produce 3 final images as the end to this project.
Look at your website - what images will you use? How will you improve on your previous experiments, thinking about your feedback?
This lesson you are learning how to bring your ideas together in a series of outcomes.
What does a good series of outcomes look like?
To be successful you will:
- produce 3 final images
- demonstrate the best of your editing skills so far
- combine at least 2 photographers styles (3 if you are going for gold)
- edit your images so they link visually - similar editing techniques, colours, compositions etc.
Work independently to produce your series of 3 outcomes, taking on board your feedback.
- Link clearly to your photographers
- Use a range of editing techniques (layering, colours, cropping composition, contrast, blur etc)
- Edit 3 different photographs using the same techniques
- Don't use any blurry photos!
GOLD: Push yourself to combine aspects of all three photographers, but make sure you are able to explain how you have done this.
Upload each photo full size to your website as you finish.
Finished? Well done!
When your final pieces are finished and uploaded, you need to write an evaluation for the project at the bottom of the page.
To evaluate, use these questions to help you:
What was the title of your project and how have you developed your project inspired by it? What approach have you taken?
Which artists have inspired your project and how?
What have you experimented with to help you develop your ideas for the project?
What is the idea behind your final series of images and how does it bring together the best parts of your project?
How did you create your final series of images?
What are the overall strengths of your project and why?
What are your areas for development - what do you need to work on in future projects?
If you need sentence starters, use these (copy and paste!), but add plenty to them. No one word answers! Explain yourself fully and expand on your answers as much as you can.
