You thought you were done with WorkKeys for a while … psyche! Today we are doing a single exam on Graphic Literacy.

11:10 Presentations of Work
This morning we are going to turn off our screens and present the three CAWD Homework projects you completed while learning remotely. We have about 3 minutes per student so we will have to be expeditious.
This week Casey will be modeling appropriate constructive criticism.
Constructive criticism is the process of offering valid and well-reasoned opinions about the work of others, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly manner rather than an adversarial one.
We are going to separate the design from the designer. You can hate with a burning passion a colleague at work, but a professional designer can still give valid, relevant input.
Monitors off – let’s begin.
No Supplemental Presentations – no late work possible.

12:20 Flexbox Practice: The Carter
Carter in B cohort had an interesting layout question. He was trying to layout his design using floats and it was giving him a hard time – today we are going to walk through the process of creating that layout using Flexbox to get some real world practice.
12:45 Web Designer Certification Exam Prep
Just like we prep for the SAT’s, or ACT’s, or WorkKeys, we are going to practice for our Web Designer certification exam.
This is important as the exam is multiple choice! This is excellent in many ways, but also means that we have to start working in that multiple choice medium.
This is the brass ring to beat!
