An Introduction to the Basics of Typography Worksheet

Lesson Plan Published 8/26/11 Last updated on 5/31/19
This is the worksheet I use when introducing typography using the web site, It is a simple worksheet that the forces the students to read the whole web site and record key elements that I find important. Pls note - I have also added information which I feel is critically important to the worksheet, from another web source (documented on the sheet).Feel free to use the document as is or to change it to better suit your needs.
