Weekly Lesson Plans Semester 1, 2014

Posted on Sep 3, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 3, 2014

I always like to look at how other teachers sequence their teaching, so here are my first semester scope and sequence plans for my Art classes and my Computer classes. The second semester is when I really get going heavy with Adobe software. I teach in Tainan, Taiwan and I am surprised that the students are not more tech-savvy. Anyway, I welcome your input and suggestions. The Art plans have a lot more links. I use the free online program: www.commoncurriculum.com to do all my planning.

Have you ever seen an amazing photo but could never figure out how it was taken? A good photographer can accomplish this. And if not, Photoshop has tools for correcting many kinds of imperfections, from smoothing pores and wrinkles to removing unsightly power lines. How about the pages of beauty magazines? Wow, those models have no imperfections! Or what about the cherish photos in our wallets of our loved ones—all leave the tale tell signs of cracks, rips, tears, and misshapen corners. Majority of the photos that you see, can be fixed with Photoshop. Although, this topic is taught in the advanced level of Photoshop, we will touch briefly what retouching can do.

Advanced Typography / Neighborhood

Posted on Aug 11, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 28, 2014

The following assignment is done over three class periods. Students are encouraged to really think about the place that they are studying, rather than just creating a slick branding typographic treatment. Students have had great results because they explore how a variety of letterforms can come together in one or two words. ————————————— Choose a local neighborhood with which you are familiar. Develop a list of eight characteristics you want to convey. Edit this list down to four or five complimentary terms. You will design the name of the neighborhood to reflect your entire list of  concepts. Note that this is not specifically a logotype project, although these skills will be useful in designing identities. Your project could include – but is not limited to – modifying letterforms, combining diverse typefaces, altering the baselines/kerning, handwriting, and photography. In the sec... Read More

Advanced Typography / Phrase Exploration

Posted on Aug 10, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 11, 2014

I like the exercise described below since it offers students a way to explore the way letterforms interact, and it also prompts a discussion of the meaning of letterforms, as well as typographic terminology. This exercise also requires that students really dive into the software and explore the how to use multiple programs within one project. ____________________ Select an adage or proverb. Search for typefaces or lettering samples which feel appropriate for your message. You should employ magazines, type specimen books or your own photographs as your material. You will use your samples to create eight collages which spell out your phrase. It's important to select a wide range of typographic choices, not just ones that make sense on first viewing. In the second phase, you will select the most successful collage and redesign it six times using the computer. Make sure to keep the underlying concepts and rough composition, but test...

Typography / Kerning Exercise

Posted on Aug 10, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 21, 2014

After I explain the syllabus in the first class period, I have students dive right into a kerning exercise. While the Adobe Software in general and type designs in particular have become so much better over the years, it seems that new students don't really see the micro adjustments that are necessary (or possible) with kerning. So, I have them kern one word using Trajan – by hand! After they layout their letters on their desk, they glue their results in the middle of a horizontal sheet of paper. Depending on the confidence of the student, the hand's on part of this exercise can take any where from 20 minutes to 45 minutes. After evaluating their results, they move to the computer and they choose a different word to kern using Illustrator. They are able to see and kern much better after working by-hand first. After we discuss their digital results, I like to show this video (see below) which discusses the origin and current meaning of Trajan (movies). While the video seems light, it's the perfect...

Design a Logo - Add to Business Letter and Create a Website

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by Dawnette Brenner Last Activity on Aug 23, 2014

Students will use their professional business letters they created in language arts class in this lesson. Instructions for creating a logo are contained within this lesson, tutorials are provided and step-by-step instructional plans are listed to make it easy for any teacher to follow these plans. Once your students are done creating logos, they can add them to their professional business letters, and pretend they are the Marketing Director of their new company. Have them introduce their product or service in the letter and they can even design goods the company will market. Once finished, students can create a website, tutorials for doing so are listed in the links within this lesson plan. I like to refer to this as a "Business Unit on Language Arts literacy and Digital Logo Design"
