Kandinsky and Pharrell Williams have something else in common.

Synesthesia is a neurological condition in which two or more senses are attached. People with synesthesia have a relationship between the senses. The excitement of one sense stimulates the experiencing of another. It is estimated that one in every 10,000 people has synesthesia but recently this estimation has been doubted because is a very low ratio considering the number of reported cases.

http://synesthesia-test.com/

_______________________________________________________

Synesthetes:

Estimates for the number of people with synesthesia range from 1 in 200 to 1 in 100,000.

Over 60 types of synesthesia have been reported.

Musicians:

Actors:

Writer:

Visual Artists:

Having synesthesia is a trait, like having blue eyes. There is nothing wrong with the synesthetic mind; in fact, it is likely to possess a better capacity for memory and recall. So in fact, synesthesia is more of a gift or beneficial adaptation than it is a medical condition or a form of disease. -  bEleanor Harvie on in Mishaps

Wassily Kandinsky

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8a/Vassily-Kandinsky.jpeg

Wassily Kandinsky 

Russian artist

Painted some of the earliest known works of pure abstract art.

Kandinsky's early paintings were landscapes that were heavily influenced by Impressionist artists as well as Pointillism and Fauvism. He painted with the Blue Rider which was a name of a group of artists.  (Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Franz Marc, Gabriele Munter - to name a few)

 He rose to prominence in the 1910s to become one of the leading figures in modern art.

Arduino 101 Workshop

Note: If you already have Arduino on your computer for a previous workshop, please make sure you have theArduino 1.6.9 version so we are all on the same page. You will also need to download an add-on program for the Arduino 101 “Curie” if you have never worked with an Arduino 101 before.  

You will need an internet connection and a laptop running one of the following (your instructor will be using Windows 7 or 8.1):

  1. Windows XP, 7, 8.1, or 10
  2. Mac OS X 10.7 Lion or newer
  3. Linux 32-bits or 64-bits

If you are an advanced user, you may want to look at instructions here: Getting Started Guide:https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Arduino101

Or you can follow these instructions:

1. Download and install this software onto your laptop. If you have trouble, make sure that pop ups are enabled:
 a. Download the Arduino IDE, located here:https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
IDE = “Integrated Development Environment” It includes everything you will need on your laptop to “talk to” (program) the Arduino 101 board. 
 

2. We are working with a processor (a.k.a., “core”) that is new to the Arduino IDE (software). It is called the Curie. You will need to install a software add-on program so that the Arduino IDE will recognize the Curie core when we connect the Arduino 101 with a USB cable to the laptop later on. To understand this in more detail see the Guide to installing a core, otherwise, continue on: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Cores

3. Next, To install the Curie add-on program:

a. Once you have installed the Arduino IDE, you need to open it. On a Windows machine, you can go to the Start menu and look under All Programs to find and launch the Arduino software/program/IDE.

b. Next, Click on Tools and Boards, then Boards Manager

c. A window will pop up (see below). Scroll down to the Curie Board. Click on the More Info link and buttons will appear; then click on the Install button. Tools (a program) will start to download from the internet. This will take a few minutes.​

d. Another window may pop up asking you if you would like to install this device software. Click Install. You may have to do this several times.

e. Click close. If you get a notification that the software did not install correctly, make sure you are not on a network that has a firewall that prevents you from making installations.

f. Check and make sure that install was successful: Go back to step 3B, and if you were successful at installing the core, you will see this for the Curie board

You are now ready to use your Arduino!

Set up

Before you plug anything into your Raspberry Pi, make sure that you have all the equipment listed above to hand. This sounds simple to "techs" it took me 2 days. Then follow these instructions:

  1. Begin by slotting your SD card into the SD card slot on the Raspberry Pi, which will only fit one way.
  2. Next, plug in your USB keyboard and Mouse into the USB slots on the Raspberry Pi.
  3. Make sure that your monitor or TV is turned on, and that you have selected the right input (e.g. HDMI 1, DVI, etc)
  4. Then connect your HDMI cable from your Raspberry Pi to your monitor or TV.
  5. If you intend to connect your Raspberry Pi to the internet, plug in an ethernet cable into the ethernet port next to the USB ports, otherwise skip this step.
  6. When you are happy that you have plugged in all the cables and SD card required, finally plug in the micro usb power supply. This action will turn on and boot your Raspberry Pi.
  7. If this is the first time your Raspberry Pi and NOOBS SD card have been used, then you will have to select an operating system and configure it. Follow the NOOBS guide to do this.

These directions are from the web.... You may find some you prefer. If so, share ad I'll change them.

  1. Once your Raspberry Pi has completed the boot process, a login prompt will appear. The default login for Raspbian is username pi with the password raspberry. Note you will not see any writing appear when you type the password. This is a security feature in Linux.
  2. After you have successfully logged in, you will see the command line promptpi@raspberrypi~$
  3. To load the graphical user interface, type startx and press Enter on your keyboard.

Hebron Valley Grade 2_Poetry in Every Subject!

Day 1 and Day 2_Librarian - Introduction Literary connection

Librarian role-

Lesson Part One: Intro to the unit- Build background through Poetry Lessons. Possible activities (use the Comprehension Toolkit and TeachingBooks.net for guidance as well):

Choose some fun poetry books and do some read aloud. As you read each one, have students respond to the poetry by asking these questions:

  1. What do you notice about the poem’s sound? (Look for answers about rhymes, etc.)

  2. Did you notice any patterns? If so, what?

  3. What images did the poet/author make in the poem? How did they do that? What parts of the poem give you that image?

When all is done, create an anchor chart about what Ss learn. One possibility might be a treemap, with poetry at the top, and the elements, with examples, listed below, and the frame of reference is the poetry books read. Another might be a circle map with poetry in the middle, and what kids learned in the outer circle, with book titles in the frame of reference. However you want to make the anchor chart is fine, as long as it covers and incorporates the vocab of rhythm, repetition, rhyme, and their impact on imagery. This anchor chart will then go into the classroom.

Lesson Part Two: Note- If the Art teacher is not involved in the unit of study, the librarian would do this part as well

Review the elements of poetry students have learned. Next, play a few seconds of a song that is familiar to them (in this case, we used Pharrell Williams' "Happy"). Explain to students that songs are merely poems with music. Then show students the lyrics, reading the first few lines as a poem, discussing the rhythm, repetition, pattern, imagery, and meaning. Discuss how just as music is related to poetry, so is Art. The elements of poetry are all around us, even if we don't realize it.

Lyrics can be found here: https://www.lyrics.com/lyric/30024711/Pharrell+Williams/Happy

Begin by pulling up https://www.guggenheim.org/artwork/artist/vasily-kandinsky on the board and allow students to just look at the art pieces. Ask them what they notice.

Next, read the book The Noisy Paint Box: The Colors and Sounds of Kandinsky’s Abstract Art by Barb Rosenstock. Stop along the way to ask students to reflect and respond on what they're reading.

Finally, after reading the text (you may only read part of it and suggest students check it out to accommodate for time), pull up some of Kandinsky's work to evaluate more closely. Where is there rhythm? Where is there repetition and pattern? As colors repeat themselves in the piece, imagine the song that must have played in his head?

Tying it all together- all of the elements of poetry, music, and art bring unity to the piece. We glean meaning from these pieces through the elements coming together. Stanzas in poems, choruses in songs, and repeated patterns, colors, line and shape all tell a complete story.

Challenge students to listen to songs and think of the poetry involved, look at the natural world around them and identify the patterns, repetition, and rhythm they see, and finally to think of art as a visual poem- that may carry sound for some very special people, like Kandinsky and Pharrell Williams.

Day 4 and 5 - All hands on Deck!_Scratch

45-60 mins. both days)- All hands on deck: Students will be given copies of the song lyrics to Pharrell Williams’ Happy. They will discuss the rhythm, patterns, rhyme, and imagery of the lyrics, recognizing that when set to music, the poem now has sound.

Jody will also talk about artists who can see sounds. Pharrell Williams is such an artist. See full art lesson for integration during this process.

Then, students will create their own poetry “songs” with Scratch and the MakeyMakeys, including patterns, rhythm and sounds to create an image. We will use Library Services iPads to record students’ work, placing each file in a Google folder for teachers and students to access for possible assessment and e-portfolio use.

Wrap-up/reflect- Students write their own poem, and include a reflection about how poems use rhythm, rhyme, and pattern to create images and make meaning, identifying where those elements are in their own poem, and how they’ve created imagery.

Want to see a Kandinsky in person?  This one is at the DMA https://uncrated.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/kandinsky-e1339017458227.jpg


Classroom Teacher / Art Teacher / this time Jody will do this part.

Lesson Introduction:

 

Display or show paintings by Kandinsky.

 

  1. What do you notice when you look at this painting?

  2. Do you see objects like a house or a cow?

  3. When you see a painting that doesn’t “represent” or look like things you can touch, it is called abstract art. This is abstract art.

READ: Teacher will read: The Noisy Paint Box

  1. What did Kandinsky’s family say about his artwork?

  2. What 5 senses do we all have?  What 2 senses did Kandinsky use when he painted?  Do you think this is unusual? Sometimes people think when someone is different that is a problem, but we know that it a gift sometimes.

Art Analysis of his paintings:

As you look at Kandinsky’s works the children will have their own vocabulary that aligns with the standard. Allow them to use their words keeping in mind to build off of the ones that mean basically the same as the elements of art.

 

  1. Line

  2. Shape

  3. Color

  4. Texture

  5. Form

  6. Space

 

The teacher will remind the kids that they are studying poetry in their ELA class. Ask about their experience and have them tie what they learned to the paintings by Kandinsky.

 

Examples:

So, patterns repeat and lines, shapes, and colors can repeat, too.

 

Draw Connections with previous lessons:

 

Who can tell me what Pharrell Williams has that causes him to see colors when he hears a musical note? synesthesia

Kandinsky is a visual artist who also heard musical notes when he saw a particular color. Kandinsky most likely had synesthesia, a condition in which two or more of a person’s senses are intertwined. Kandinsky said he heard colors. For him, yellow represented low notes and deep blue represented high notes. He composed his painting like a musical song. Each color had its own special sound.

“Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”

 

He is credited as being the first artist to create a purely abstract work by some historians.

 

Project -

Options:

 

Play Music: Franz Liszt - Guess what, he had synesthesia, too!  Who can tell me what that means again?- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piano_Concerto_No._1_(Liszt)

 

Think about how Kandinsky and how he used line, shape, and color in his paintings. Think about how you feel today.  How would your colors represent your mood and how you feel? How does this music he liked look when it is on paper? What color did you make the high notes? What color are the low notes?

 

  1. Draw shapes on a scrap piece of paper. (repetition)

    1. The shapes are abstract

    2. 1 shape you will draw 5 times.

    3. 1 shape you will draw 5 times

    4. And 1 shape you will only get to use one time.

    5. The colors reflect the feel of the music.

 

  1. On your drawing paper, you will need to show how you will use line, color, shapes, and texture similar to Kandinsky.  You will repeat the shapes, what else can you repeat?

  2. Draw it with pencil first.

  3. Count your shapes.

  4. What colors feel like the music?  Create an abstract composition that reflects the music, shows the rhythm of the music and has repetition.

 

Rubric -

The rubric is a guide more for the teacher to ensure they are guiding, and reinforcing the students as they create. If they draw a tree or horse,  talk to them about their choice... You might find that they researched Kandinsky and liked his blue rider period better. This is a great opportunity to guide them to understand that in art there are representational and nonrepresentational works.

Kandinsky later works were abstract nonrepresentational.

 

color

Used 2 colors.

Used more than 2 colors.

repetition

Did not meet have the correct number of shapes even with guidance.

1 shape you will draw 5 times.

1 shape you will draw 5 times

And 1 shape you will only get to use one-time

abstraction

Non-representational

Representational

Can talk about their work.

The child enjoyed the project, but they could not talk about their painting.

Teacher engaged with all kids. The child could articulate facts about their competition.

Grade 2_Teachers_ Why does Privacy Matter?

Why does privacy matter?

 

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) - Federal Law

https://studentprivacy.ed.gov/ Law updated February 24, 2017

This is a federal law that has to do with a  student’s directory information and their school records.

FERPA defines "directory information" as information contained in a student's education record that generally would not be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. Directory information could include:

A school may disclose directory information to anyone, without consent, if it has given parents: general notice of the information it has designated as "directory information;" the right to opt out of these disclosures; and the period of time they have to notify the school of their desire to opt out.

 

COPPA

This is a law that affects websites and the collection of personal information from children. How does this affect a classroom teacher? If you choose an educational App / Website that requires users to create a username and password, then you must check their Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Because you requested your students use the site to support the curriculum, then you must have the parents sign a permission form for their child to use it clearly stating it collects student information and have the parent’s create the student’s ID and password.
