SESSION 2 FORUM DISCUSSION PROMPTS


2.3 Design and Performance of a Gallery Learning Experience:


1) Give some examples of themes you’d be interested in exploring through a GLEx.


2.5 Examining One Artwork at the Whitney Museum with Heather Maxson:


2) As you watch Heather’s gallery teaching, think about and discuss a select number of questions below. You do not have to answer all—only the ones that you are keen on thinking about.


    • How does Heather explore some of the elements of the work?
    • How does the phases of the exploration resemble or differ from how I described them?
    • How does the teen audience’s responses generate, lead and sustain the exploration of the work?
    • How does she introduce the theme? And for how long?
    • When (at what point in the video) and for how long does she do the “observation”?
    • When (at what point in the video) and for how long does she do the “description”?
    • How and/or how long does she integrate “interpretation” and “connection”?
    • When (at what point in the video) does she give the name of the artist?
    • When (at what point in the video) does she give the title?
    • What else does she make students do?
    • What are some things she did that we didn’t cover in the lecture?
    • What are some facilitation strategies that were particularly useful?
    • What was one of the most surprising aspects of this GLEx for you?
