This is a very well written lesson plan. It puts the student in the character of an art collector who is able to purchase photography and argue its authenticity.

The lesson plan covers three state standards for visual arts, which are 2.3, 2.6 and 3.2. This project is broken down into six days, which consists of computer/lab work (research), the creation of a power point presentation, and then a presentation to the class on what they have researched.

For UDL, I like how students can learn independently on what they want to research in art as opposed to learning about a specific artwork, they are given their own freedom and creativity to choose and express their work. This helps open the door for creativity.

I think something that may improve the lesson are giving them different options to present their material other than in powerpoint. This could include using an interactive white board, or a document camera (if applicable). It may help the student express their creativity.

This lesson plan provides an excellent opportunity for students to put themselves in the shoes of an art collector.  They are asked to critically look at photographs and decide which 4 they would like to "buy."

The lesson is subdivided into 4 days of work and 2 days of presentations.  Students have assigned work to complete on each of the 4 work days.  This level of structure will help students that need (crave) structure.

There are 3 networks of UDL.  The Affective Network is really being exercised in this assignment when the students choose which photographs they liked, and explain why.

Students learn about photographs by conducting their own research.  Discovery learning is a great way to get students interested and let them explore their interests.  When students get to choose part of what they learn, they tend to enjoy and persue it more.

One thing that might improve the lesson is allowing students to complete a different type of project.  Maybe some students prefer to create projects using their hands more (and computers less).

Technical Remarks:

Well done.  There are no technical mistakes with this Word Document.
