This past term we transitioned from writing Personal Memoirs to Memoir Poetry to a 6-Word Memoir. In the end, choosing just six words to represent an event is difficult. I hope that you will take some time to enjoy our memoirs:
The New Year is a time filled with resolutions and new beginnings. In an effort to promote awaremess of healthy ways, you will create a Health Magazine of your own. Your magazine is to include the following:
THREE articles on healthy living (topics might include: healthy eating, restaurant highlights, forms of exercise, etc)
must follow rules for article writing - (catchy headline, facts, quotes from people, etc)
article must be at least 250 words
proper punctuation, grammar and appropriate use of capitals A MUST
at least TWO of your articles must also include an image with a caption
ONE Letter to the Editor based on an article that you find in the Windsor Star (or some other newspaper)... must be health related
ONE full page advertisements for a healthy product of your choice
ONE suggested workout which will include instructions and images of you doing the workout
In this fast paced society, we often don't take time to appreciate the value in art. YOU are going to begin this New Year making sure that the rest of the class appreciates YOUR talent.
Your job is to do the following:
select an artist of your choice
once you have made the selection you will begin preparing your oral presentation (which will last 4-7 minutes)
you will find a compete list of what you will need in your presentaiton below:
YOU will become the artist and present the information in first person
Your presentation will be created using Google Presentations - but there is ONE catch... your presentation cannot include any words. You can use the notes section though to place point form reminders of what that page contains... but DO NOT READ directly from these notes PLEASE!
Your presentation must include: your life story (at lesat the highlights), 5-7 pieces of your work (where you will share the title, inspiraiton and any other interesting facts about the piece), a description of the art style you are famous for
Finally, you will create your OWN piece of art by this artist (**I will be assessing effort here as I realize you are not in fact a famous artist ;)
** Each artist can only be selected by one person. I will createa google form in our shared drive called AMAZING ARTISTS so that you will know who has already been taken. The artists will be assigned on a first come first serve basis.
