Today Sally James and I spent the day at the ESD in Spokane learning about Peer Coaching in technology. We are excited to learn how we will be able to help our buildings out when learning new technology skills and provide supports to our staff. We will be at the ESD for three days this week. Stay tuned to hear what we are learning!
Today you will be creating an about me web page. Your webpage should include at least 1000 words of information. Make sure you use all the skills that you have studied over the last few weeks.
a good color scheme written out with the specific color codes.
Information about yourself or stories about yourself that is no less than 1000 words.
Use of pictures in your page that help show who you are and what you like.
Links to some websites you like to reference or visit.
A well designed web page that is pleasing to the eye.
You are working on this today and tomorrow.
Today you are working on the design assignment lesson 6. Please do activity 1 and 2. Make sure you get to the list of questions that you should ask when building a web page for someone. Spend time this period figuring out who you will be making your final project for. If you have forgotten, you are required to make a web page for someone around the school or community.
Today you will be learning about color scheme. Your assignment is to go to the web design site and do lesson 5 activity one. When finished print the assesment out fromthe bottom of the page and answer the questions related to the activity. Don’t worry about the questions about the drugs. Make sure you turn this in. Due by the end of the period.
Welcome to the new semester of web design. Please take time today to read through the syllabus. You can always reference the syllabus on the web design page for the rest of the semester. After reading the syllabus take the syllabus quiz. When you log in to the quiz, MAKE SURE YOU INPUT YOUR NAME!!! I won’t know who’s quiz it is if you don’t give me the correct name.
Students are beginning the stained glass window project in Algebra I. Here are the criteria for the project. Please remember to keep your project size reasonable so you can get done by January 27th!
Stained Glass Window Project
The purpose of this project is to use linear equations to design a stained glass window. The intersections of zero, undefined, positive and negative lines will create your stained glass design. Knowledge and skill of graphing and writing linear equations will be used to create your project.
- Your design must include at least 32 individual lines, drawn through the entire large coordinate system, and labeled by number on the edge of your poster.
- The written equations that correspond to your numbered lines must be written on index cards that will be attached to the front of your project.
- Only straight lines may be used, drawn by a ruler.
- You must color the poster with at least five different colors.
- Your project must be unique and creative.
- Your project must be neat and reflect thought and effort.
- Begin by designing your “rough draft” of your stained glass on the smaller coordinate plane. This eventually will be a smaller version of your final draft. This must be put in your advisory binder.
- When satisfied with your design, write ALL the equations necessary to complete the stained glass picture on a piece of paper. Do this before drawing the lines on your final coordinate plane. EVERY line used must be referenced on the FRONT side of the poster.
- Transfer your “rough draft” version onto your final version coordinate system in pencil. Make sure ALL lines are drawn completely through the entire coordinate system. All lines must be lightly visible even after the coloring process is completed. The portions of lines used to create a specific design must be darkened with ink or another dark medium to make them stand out.
- Color your project. Your may use crayons, colored pencils, glitter, colored paper, watercolor paint, etc. The more unique, the more creative points earned. Be sure that the lines used to create your project are visible AFTER your coloring technique is applied.
- Mount your project onto a poster board. Include a title and your name on the front. You may be creative with your poster board as well by making your own out of different colored boards, shaping it differently, etc.
- Transfer the equations of the lines used to create your image onto the front of the poster board. These must be written neatly or typed. Number or letter your equations so that your lines are easily found by those that look at your stained glass window. Fasten the equations onto the FRONT of your poster board.
- Your grade will reflect how much time you spend on this project. If you choose to wait to the last minute to “throw” this project together, it will likely show in the quality of your work.
- Your grade will be determined by the attached rubric, which you can use for reference. For every day your project is late, a whole grade will be deducted. No project will be collected after the fifth day and a zero will be the result.
- You have three full weeks to complete this project. The project is due on Tuesday, January 27th. If you know you are going to be absent, you must turn it in early to avoid any penalties. Any project not turned in by the due date will receive the late penalty.
- The project will be worth 200 quiz points. This is big! It can make a significant change in your grade for the better or worse.
