Where DO artists get their ideas?

They say that smart people. .

have just a normal amount of brain,

but they use it in smart ways
But they use it in smart ways!

They develop thinking habits.

A Habit of Mind is knowing how to behave intelligently when you DON’T know the answer.

example some say that artists pay more attention
EXAMPLE: Some say that artists pay more attention

So what? Art is a reflection of life
  • You have seen a play and read the book it originated from. Its author says that the ideas for her characters all came from close study and observation of Korean arts and culture.

How does the poet get us to SEE what she MEANS?

Brian Carroll

How much can we notice…

in a pieceshe wrote called:

Where I am From

by using the--

critical response tool
Before we can use the tool, we have to really slow down. Getting ready involves reading the piece several times slowly.

Thinking about your thinking:

How does it help to hear the poem out loud?

What’s the effect of hearing it read by different voices?

Critical Response Tool
i am from
I am from . . .

I am from clothespins,

from Clorox and carbon-tetrachloride.

I am from the dirt under the back porch

(black, glistening

it tasted like beets).

I am from the forsythia bush,

the Dutch elm

whose long gone limbs I remember

as if they were my own.

I’m from the fudge and eyeglasses,

from Imogene and Alafair.

I’m from the know-it-alls

and the pass-it-ons,

from perk up and pipe down.

I’m from HE restoreth my soul

with a cotton ball lamb

and ten verses I can say myself.

I’m from Artemus and Billie’s Branch,

fried corn and strong coffee.

From the finger my grandfather lost

to the auger

the eye my father shut to keep his sight.

Under my bed was dress box

spilling old pictures,

a sift of lost faces

to drift beneath my dreams.

I am from those moments--

snapped before I budded--

leaf-fall from the family tree.

George Ella Lyon, on Poetry USA

describe it without judging
Step One

Thinking about your thinking:

What happens when we put off forming an opinion for a while?

Describe it without judging?
what does it remind you of
Step TwoWhat does it remind you of ?

Thinking about your thinking:

  • Can you connect it to your own life?
how does it make you feel
Step Three

Thinking about your thinking:

People remember those things that give them an emotional reaction.

How does it make you feel?
what questions does it raise for you
Step Four

Thinking about your thinking:

What does it make you wonder about?

What questions does it raise for you?
speculate what did she want you to understand
Step Five

Thinking about your thinking:

Good works of art have lots of possible meanings. It’s not like math. There’s more than one correct answer!

Speculate, what did she want you to understand?
how did it go
How did it go?

Let’s reflect on the Critical Response Tool.

Was it helpful? HOW?

1.Yes or No—did the Critical Response Tool help you to understand the poem more deeply than you did the very first time you read it?

2. Which do you prefer: Trying to figure out the meaning of something on your own, or working with others?

3. What question or questions in the Critical Response Tool was the most helpful to you in thinking deeply about/understanding this poem? Why?

A little background:

  • George Ella Lyon grew up in Harlan, Kentucky, a little coal mining town in the Appalachian mountains. She says that as a young girl, she sat listening to the stories of her family and the people around her and memorized songs, Bible verses and poetry. That got her interested in reading and writing. She’s written over a dozen books of poetry, fiction and illustrated children’s fiction. In 2005 she turned 56 years old.

  • Have you seen this before? A Korean vase with cranes? Even if you had never heard its story, by looking closely and reflecting using the Critical Response Tool, you might be able to “read” it, too.
