FOK-Essential Studies in the Arts (II)

On 5 Jan, 2016, in the second of the series on subject –Foundations of Knowledge (FOK), Ms Evelyn Tan ran a session on Arts and FOK. Beginning with an inquiry the topic that the Arts consist of, she moved on  to eliciting the students’ responses to various visual art pieces. This was followed by a discussion of the various functions of art ( self expression, reflecting society, discovering a new order, etc), culminating in a consideration of the nature of beauty, through a display of contrasting works within the same genre and from different periods. The session concluded with a return to the basic question “So, what is FOK-Essential Studies?” to highlight the emphasis on critical thinking and inquiry, the ability to form an opinion and to support it with relevant arguments and examples.

“艺术单元”的知识基础-核心问题探究(II

201615日,在知识基础课程(FOK)的“艺术单元”的探究中,Evelyn老师给同学们上了第二堂课:带领学生探讨艺术。一开始,Evelyn老师先让同学们探究了艺术包含哪些学科;接着,Evelyn老师引导同学们对不同的几幅艺术作品做出回应和讨论,同学们也在后续讨论了艺术的不同功能(自我表达、反映社会、发现新的秩序等),同时也考虑到了美的本质,通过比较同一体裁在不同时期的艺术作品。最后,本课的结论部分回到一个最基本的问题:“什么是知识基础-核心问题探究?”,以强调批判性思维和探究精神,即发展形成一个观点的能力和找到相关论据和例子来支持该观点。
