Students -please make sure you have covered your projects.
no work logs during conference week.
yesterday we looked at the scale and rubric for a cylinder
NOTE - Your Frankenpot needs to be physically turned in so it can be on display in the wild cat court - and be eligible for a prize. Please make sure when you get it graded you turn it in with your names.
the scale and rubrics focus on five main skills/ideas/techniques in each project.
Lessons tend to focus on skills and techniques - what you do with these skills and your ideas is what makes a project.
check out this scale for a cylinder
as well as the rubric
take six minutes to talk with your team - name the five basic skills then talk about why they are different and why they are the same.
Scale generally talk about how these skills/ideas/techniques work to make an actual project. Should be used by a student while the project is in process while the student is considering what he/she could do to make the project better.
Rubrics focus on how well the project demonstrates mastery of the learning targets - the skills - with in the context of a finished project. it is a way to grade a finished project. It will focus on the same basic skills in the scale.

Describe the process of making a handled project
day one ----
day two -----
after you attach the handle what do you do?
I know I need bagged clay to pull a handle
I know I need to make the handle before I foot the project
I know I need to leave the handle out for 10 minutes while I foot and before I attach it.
I know I need to put the project in a bag overnight since I've attached a new piece of clay so the handle doesn't fall off.
