- Students comleted a brainstorming exercise to explore the theme lost and found. Students could write and create a list.
See Mrs. Anderson's Example Below:
- use evidence from the song - GREEN
- make interpretations of these lyrics - PURPLE
- use evidence from our own lives to explain theme - PINK
- I represent the theme of my song using a different form: bumper sticker
- I use symbolic font (size, shape, and colour) images and colour to improve the meaning and feeling of my message.
- I use words with correct feeling to improve the tone of my bumper sticker and demand the audience's attention.
Can you find:
50. LOVE IS THE ANSWER
LOVE IS WHY WE ARE HERE. IT IS THE FORCE FOR GOOD IN THIS SOMETIMES RANDOM AND HARSH WORLD. SHARE IT FREELY. EXPRESS IT DAILY.
- Read the description then add to it. What does it mean to you?
- Underline words that are appealing and have a strong feeling.
- Create a list of things we can compare our topic to.
- Some things to use:
- transparent images of houses, family, wheat, waves, roads, and hearts to add meaning and feeling to our message.
Students participated in musical feedback today. We examined criteria when giving feedback:
- Round 1: Word choice
- Words grab attention
- Message has clear meaning
- Message has a strong overall feeling
- Round 2: Symbolic Font, Colour and Image
- Large = important dominance strength...
- Small = less important weakness, loneliness...
- Rounded = friendly + feelings
- Angular = hostile - feelings
- Red - Love / Anger / Danger
- Orange - happiness / sunny
- Yellow - friendship / cowardice / polluted
- Green - nature / money / inexperience
- Blue - calmness / sadness
- Purple - royalty / night / fear
- Black - evil / fear
- White - purity / peace
Images: Add meaning and feeling:
- to individual words
- to the statement as a whole.
- Round 3: Overall Effect
