Today: Work on Project and Prepare for Blog Checkpoint

report card

Believe it or not, we are almost halfway through the marking period. This weekend, you will receive a mid-marking period grade for your blog. You will be graded on the following criteria:

  • Frequency of blog posts
  • Evidence of progress made each class
  • Quality of writing accompanying each post (I do not expect the next great American novel; however, you should write a few sentences each class to update me on your progress and point out anything you’d like extra help with.)
  • How well each blog post fulfills that day’s learning objectives, as posted to the class website

Make sure today’s end of class post includes the most recent version of your project. If you think you will receive a poor grade for your blog, make sure you have fantastic posts today and Friday. Refer back to my sample blog post to see what I expect.

Vintage Poster Project Timeline:
Friday – In-progress peer critique. This will take about half the class, and you will have the other half of the class to implement the feedback from the critique
Tuesday – Last day to work on project and post finished project, as well as your artist statement for the project, to your blog

We will start our fall photography unit next Thursday.

By the end of today’s class, you should create a new blog post with the following:

  • A PDF of your progress
  • A paragraph describing what you still need to do to finish your poster, and your plan to catch up if you are not almost done. If you are struggling with any part of the project, include that in your paragraph.
