St. Lawrence University, The Institute for Learning Centered Education and the Frederic Remington have collaborated to make a book full of lesson plans. This is a great and useful tool for teachers everywhere! Follow the link above. This lesson is my adaptation of their lesson to fit my class. I give full credit to them for this lesson, and appreciate that it is free and for the use of my wonder time artists.
We will compare Remington’s Untitled: Around the Campfire with Charge of the Rough Riders. Students will then be asked to choose a subject matter relating to California, comprised of a verb and a noun and illustrate their choice. The final step will be to give the work a color scheme that depicts a feeling, a mood.
To feel the mood students can first read and or listen to wild west cowboy stories and songs from, "Wild West."
Thank you AT&T
