Trying to encourage content-specific vocabulary during class critiques can be like pulling teeth in a middle school art classroom, however, I have found this interactive "Elements of Art/ Principles of Design" matrix to be a helpful support. Similar to having a word wall in the art room, this chart allows for students to identify content specific vocabulary within a piece of art, simply by checking off the intersecting terms with a dry-erase marker. This simple act can stir a class discussion with vocabulary to support arguments and an interactive guide to convey and support the artistic judgements. Students are able to see a real-time, valid procedure to "grading" art.
