    Workbook, unless otherwise instructed by the teacher.

    Discuss: What is a portrait?

    As a pre-assessment task, students create their own self-portrait from observation (mirrors) in pencil (1 hour). Works are then discussed highlighting struggles, successes and strategies.

    Students answer the question, "What makes a good portrait?" in developmental workbook (homework). This can be done in paragraph form or using a mindmap.
