The Value of Starting with Respond Protocols BEFORE Making Art

Here is a clip that shows Alston, a student applying the use of Critical Response to the "chicken" painting at the Weisman Art Museum. If you view this clip you will see the transformative learning that happens when we build in inquiry-based learning strategies to culturally relevant curriculum and grant sessions. See the clip here. Additional information about how this work can be included within artful writing is located here. In regards to the MN Academic Standards related to this content, it does not require students to make art. It asks them to respond. Critical Response holds great value in allowing the space for students to more deeply investigate works art and has merit as a form of study PRIOR to any creating of art that might be connected to a variety of cultures.

MN American Indian Dance - Lesson Exemplar

The 6-8 Arts Standards include the benchmark requiring students to: Compare and contrast the connections among works in dance, their purposes and their cultural, historical and social contexts, including the contributions of Minnesota American Indian tribes and communities (Dance 6.1.3.1.1 )


As a starting point for meeting that benchmark, this model lesson uses two videos Women's Fancy Shawl Dance in different settings and contexts along with suggested tools for examining the video:

Liz Lerman's Four Questions



Liz Lerman is a choreographer, performer, writer, educator and speaker who been the recipient of numerous honors, including a 2002 MacArthur "Genius Grant" Fellowship and a 2011 United States Artists Ford Fellowship. A key aspect of her artistry is opening her process to various publics from shipbuilders to physicists, construction workers to ballerinas, resulting in both research and outcomes that are participatory, relevant, urgent, and usable by others. All of her projects are framed from these three essential questions, to which we have added two questions focusing on teacher practice.
