This resource can be used to support the development of new knowledge and skills in Stage 6 Visual Arts students. Using student sample work as exemplars is a recognised means of raising student expectations and establishing explicit quality criteria.
Teachers can set standalone activities from this resource, or work through the entire set of activities.
As students progress through the online content in this presentation, teachers can interact with students and provide feedback using a shared online platform, such as Google classroom, or in face-to-face lessons.
Teachers can set more specific timelines for student work and can add resources and/or feedback to support the tasks and to differentiate learning.
