Review “Continuity of Education” expectations
In our new “normal” we are going to continue to work on both technical and artistic work through the end of the school year. Our work will be assigned Monday, due Friday’s at 3pm.
Please remember that the Vermont Department of Education has directed schools to take attendance during our “Continuity of Education”. This will be done daily in Cawd through the following activities:
- Monday – Article Read / Feedback Form. We started this the week before vacation. Articles come out at 9:40 – normal starting time for Cawd.
- Tuesday – Article Read / Feedback Form
- Wednesday – Article Read / Feedback Form
- Thursday – Article Read / Feedback Form
- Friday – Turn work in by 3pm
Each of these daily activities counts as a “contact” between the student and the school – the “attendance”. If you do the above activities by midnight, you are considered “in-class” for that day.
Tasks to complete this week
This week there are going to be two tasks to be complete:
- Realistic Human Nose Drawing
- Stimulus Calculator Part 1 of 2 (HTML + JS)
Part 1 – Realistic Human Nose Drawing
So far in our study of Portraits we have worked with eyes and mouths. Next up is the nose.
Follow the video resource above. This time there is also a linear step by step that you can choose to follow as well – click here to see this resource.
Take your time, do as best you can.
When complete please take a photo to email me by Friday at 3pm.
Part 2 – Stimulus Calculator Part 1 of 2 (HTML + JS)
As part of the Federal Stimulus Package put in play by the Coronavirus, the US Government sent millions of citizens checks to help cover expenses and continue to feed the economy.
Many news sites such as CNN had Stimulus Calculators where users could enter in the reality of their situations, and find out how much the US Government will be sending them. These online calculators were built in HTML / CSS / JS.
We are going to start a 2 week “Stimulus Calculator” project. This week we are going to build the structure and interactivity (HTML & JS), and next week we will style with CSS. This will follow our learning of web technologies:
- HTML for the structure of the page
- JS for the interactivity
- CSS for the styling
The Stimulus Calculator we are going to program this week is going to get the following information from the user, and then output how much they will receive:
- Are you single or married?
- How many children do you have?
Following you will have a learning resource where I code and explain what we are developing. You can watch and then code – or watch and code with me, whatever is your pleasure. Below the video you will also find screenshots of the final code to reference.
Screenshots of code:
Upload your completed project into your “week_32” folder, which lives inside your “distance” folder. If you are using Codepen.io please continue to develop your “pen” and email me the completed link.
This needs to be complete and uploaded by Friday at 3pm.
Due dates – evidence of completion
- Take a photo of your Realistic Human Nose sketch and email to me by Friday May 1st at 3pm.
- Create a “week_32” folder inside of your “distance” folder. Upload Part 1 of our Stimulus Calculator project by Friday May 1st at 3pm.
Contacting Mr. Cronin
I am going to hold “office hours” where I sit at my computer on Monday’s from 10-12. My work email goes right to my phone, so you are going to have no trouble contacting me outside of this. I will respond as soon as I can. I have already been in contact with students at different times during the day – let’s just keep that communication flowing as normal.
