(Building upon research done in Lesson Plan 1)
Desired outcomes: Learners should demonstrate their ability to
Time: 2-3 hours (several computer sessions)
Number of students: Dependent on the number of computers available with Internet access.
Individually or as a team (depending on the availability of computers connected to the Internet) the students should search the web to find modern Resistance Artists and should identify what these artists are resisting. The artists can be from any country. They can begin by following the links given on this site, and should then do general searches looking at art galleries in the chosen country/ies and at art sites focusing on contemporary art. (It is not often easy to find sites on specific artists, but galleries usually have good information on the artists they exhibit.)
During this search, the information found on the Internet should be recorded on cards or pieces of paper stating:
As a larger group or as a class, their discoveries, written on sheets of paper that can be put up on the walls, should be displayed. As the information unfolds, the class can identify areas of similarities and differences between the modern Resistance Artists as well as between those artists and South African Resistance Artists.
Application: Students can further define their definition of Resistance Art through open discussion and/or written essays that draw upon the examples of the various Resistance Artists studied (both on this site and those found). One aim could be to demonstrate their understanding of Resistance Art in general and South African Resistance Art in particular: how they are the same and different.
