10/5 & 10/7

TOPICS

  • 6.1- Characteristics of classic design

ESSENTIAL IDEAS

  • Now let's get into today's work (its basically review)
    • Home based Scavenger Hunt for classic designs 
      • Find examples of CLASSIC DESIGN in your environment.
      • This will take a while.  I suggest you take lots of pictures of different things, think about them, and THEN pick the 6 that you feel like most meet the criteria for CLASSIC DESIGN. 
        • Three need to be NOT inside your house (so that means three do need to be from your house!).  That can mean your neighborhood or in the community.  There is NO NEED to travel / get in a car. 
        • At least 1 has to have a greater emphasis on form rather than function (today's lesson)
      • Things you cannot take pictures of (because we already talked about them):
        • Staplers
        • Scissors
        • Apple products
        • Anything else that was on the PPT notes / the project assignments.
      • Create your PPT for the Classic Designs you found with a quick paragraph discussing WHY they are classic designs.  Make sure to use the language of the class in your explanations! 
  • This is going to be due on FRIDAY 
    • We'll check in on Wednesday and you can ask me if something works or not.

8/31 -- Welcome!

 

9/2

  • Keep working on the assignment -- Codega will make one in Teams for you to turn your though process in document.
    • In case you forgot, here's the assignment!
      • You will have 3 hours to design and then create anything you want that captures the essence of you
        • The project MUST contain the following elements (point value is included in the parentheses):
        • Your design can take any form but CREATIVITY is paramount.  This class will require you to think creatively to solve complex problems on an almost daily basis so why not see if you measure up.  By interacting with it (whatever that means for your design) Codega must get a sense of who you are.  There is a degree of subjectivity to this therefore a formal grade will not be assigned until after the presentations are given (75 points). 
          • If this sounds unreasonable to you please reconsider taking this class -- HL Geography, Bio, Art, and Theater are looking for more students!
          • You will present your creation quickly next week –You must provide a WRITTEN explanation of your thought process  -- how did you come up with your idea (hint: it didn't just pop into your head) (20 points)
          • Included any notes, sketches, or brainstorming that you did in the design phase (just attach it to the written document)  –
        • The Presentation (5 points) –Basically take no more than 1 minute to explain your project. 

          –THIS PROJECT IS INTENTIONALLY VAGUE! –This will count as your first test grade.
