Class starts anew, January 9th.
I often do origami for the following reasons:
1. I like it.
2. You can usually find paper so a lot of pre-planning is not necessary.
3. Since I usually talk to fast, and tend to muddle through directions, the
students have to talk to, and depend upon each other for the successful
completion of the project.
4. A lot of math, literacy(vocabulary), and some cultural items can be
covered through origami.
During class we talked about why it’s important to use art projects to enhance and further a students’ understanding of various educational objectives. We folded some puppets, a hat, a boat, and a bell shape.
I passed out a syllabus, but if you need another one click: 2012 syllabus
Next class were on to some elements of design; repeated, overlap, no overlap, random and orderly.
