Ist year graphic design teacher
Hello. I am a new to teaching graphic design. I have been teaching fine arts for the past 6 years.
I came into a great job. There is no curriculum, no sequence learning and I feel like I am treading water. I want to make sure my students are prepared and learning it in a way they are really going to grasp the concepts, tools and how to use the programs efficiently. I have started in Illustrator, but not sure how to teach (like where to start, do I do one tool at a time with an activity, etc.) I feel like I am jumping ahead a little too much, then end up back tracking.
I also have 1st years and 2nd years in the same class and I feel it difficult to teach and have time for both. I have a 3hour class, morning and afternoon and I teach the same kids everyday.
Please help!! Any suggestions are very much appreciated!!!!
