Below is the Data Analysis for the Photo 1 lesson. Students were supposed to take 20 photos in a digital format then upload them to the school server. From there they would pick a few to work with in Photoshop. They were given a prompt to shoot pictures for and create ambiance in image. This was an unusually small class of 11 students. Two of which were not in attendance for this lesson. Inside the document I have analyzed the success of the lesson by assessing the percentage of students attaining proficiency, developing or emerging rating based on the success criteria of the lesson and the standards of the Fort Collins Art Department.
Professional disposition review:
I chose these two documents to example reflection of practice, and student engagement. It is important to obtain feedback and reflect on that feedback. In the process of art making the artist reflects often as they make different choices in the making process. I feel that the practice of education should be approached the same way. We try things to see if they work, assess how they worked, make changes where failure or inconsistencies appear and try again. We do this until we have crafted a finely tuned method of reaching 100% of our students with high engagement ratings. I feel that these two documents demonstrate how I reflect upon my actions while teaching and realize the things that worked or did not work and what I plan to do in the future. Documentation of process is another important aspect of art making and I feel it is just as important in education. Documentation of process allows accurate reflection and noting where things worked or did not. Pinpointing the area needing change and cutting down or eliminating inconsistencies.
