In this lesson, the students will examine a variety of pottery forms; discuss their meanings, functions, and the different cultures that created them. This lesson will explore ways that pottery characteristics can give clues about how the forms were used in the past and their value based on the cultures that created them. We will also include the pottery made by the students in the first class to compare their choices for form, function and discuss if their ideas were influenced from their past knowledge of pottery. We will discuss, compare and critique each group’s responses. This lesson was developed by Belinda Coston as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program. This lesson plan has been vetted at the local and state level for standards alignment, Global Education focus, and content accuracy.
