Welcome to Week 33 “Distance Learning” in Cawd. Inside this document you are going to find:
- Attendance Update
- Tasks to complete this week
- Due dates – evidence of completion
- Contacting Mr. Cronin
Starting with our recently completed Week 32 we are going to be adding attendance into our Quarter 4 grading. The vast majority of you will see a grade increase due to this as you are completing our daily check ins
As you know there are 5 daily check ins during the CAWD week:
- Monday – Article and Feedback
- Tuesday – Article and Feedback
- Wednesday – Article and Feedback
- Thursday – Article and Feedback
- Friday – Turning in Weekly Work
This will be assessed through the following rubric:
- 5/5 days of attendance and work completed on time – 100%
- 4/5 days of attendance and work completed on time – 80%
- 3/5 days of attendance and work completed on time – 60%
- 2/5 days of attendance and work completed on time – 40%
- 1/5 days of attendance and work completed on time – 20%
- 0/5 days of attendance and work completed on time – 0%
Please note that nobody has earned a 40 or below so far, and only one student has even had a 60. The vast majority of you are earning the 100’s, and will continue to.
Just remember to check in daily using the CAWD activities specified above, and reap the glory of the 100’s.
Tasks to complete this week
This week there are going to be two tasks to be complete:
- Human ear sketch – from a front view
- Stimulus Calculator Part 2 of 2 (CSS)
Part 1 – Front view of an ear sketch
So far in our study of Portraits we have worked with eyes, mouths, and noses. Next up is the ear.
There are many resources out there to draw ears from the side (which frankly is very interesting as a design element on its own), but when we are thinking about the study of Portraits, we often need to look at the ear from the front.
Follow the resource below to start practicing drawing a realistic human ear on the next page of your sketchbook.
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 2 of 2 (CSS)
Last week we started our Stimulus Calculator and got the functionality down, this week we are going to work on the styling.
Remember the logic of the Web Design we are building:
- HTML for the structure of the page
- JS for the interactivity
- CSS for the styling
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.
We are going to use the following image from Unsplash as our background. We will hotlink directly from their site as some of us are using CodePen. Remember if you are ever looking for some high quality free imagery to use in projects Unsplash is a great resource.
We are going to use a Google font – and they have changed up the interface, so we will get some practice with that.
Meta Viewport Tag
We are going to need our Meta Viewport tag so that when the screen size gets smaller the web browser doesn’t attempt to scale the content down. We want the Responsive Design to be enabled.
Screenshots of code:
Upload your completed project into your “week_33” 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.
** If you have issues or haven’t completed Week 32’s work yet, you have to do that first or you won’t really be able to do Week 33.
Due dates – evidence of completion
- Take a photo of your sketch of an ear from the front view and email to me by Friday May 8th at 3pm.
- Create a “week_33” folder inside of your “distance” folder. Upload Part 2 of our Stimulus Calculator project by Friday May 8th 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.
