Use this lesson plan to help your students develop what the author calls “self lists” that will give them ideas for their artwork. He describes the Conversation Game, which helps students become acquainted with others in their group. As the participants ask questions, they also answer those questions from their own perspective beginning a recognition of their own values and beliefs. By developing their self-knowledge, they can then extend that knowledge to ideas for their art projects. Find suggestions for homework connected to the game and try the variations of the game. Even though this is slanted toward older high school and college students, the ideas could be distilled for middle school students too.
