In this reading, one activity that I found really interesting was the Burning Secrets lesson plan. This lesson plan includes making origami boxes (but encouragement for making your own too), learning what conceptual art is and how to apply it to their own artwork, and participating in a conceptual art experience. I thought this lesson plan was especially unique because of the conceptual art involvement. I think that one thing in art that some have problems with is making a conceptual art piece, and this lesson plan is great for explaining what it actually is and how to incorporate it into their own artwork. It also talks about doing installations with the boxes, which I think is a great way for students to think about how they could use the environment around them for their art. All in all I think this is a great activity and I hope to use it for inspiration for my own lesson plans.
One thing that I've seen before is PostSecret.com, which is just a blog that has pages and pages of hand made postcards with people's secrets on them. They send them in anonymously, and the author of the blog puts about 20 or so up each Sunday. He also makes books with pages full of the postcards. It could be interesting for students to digitally make their own postcard secrets, and print them out and send them in.
