For each module (weeks 3-11) students will be required to complete design activities and/or assessments (see sample activities in the next column) that could be used in a secondary classroom as an example. The completed assessments are included in a curriculum portfolio showcasing the pre-service teacher's mastery of the content and ability to apply the concepts he/she is expected to teach.
A. Color Wheel: Reproduce the color wheel using colored pencils or another medium with labels of each color included. Place the finished color wheel in your portfolio as a design resource.
B. Color Schemes: Using colored pencils or another medium, reproduce the color schemes on pages 301-305 in the text. Make sure to label each color scheme and place the finished page(s) in your portfolio.
C. Rhythm: Find pictures of rooms that show various types of patterns. Label at least one picture that displays each type of rhythm: repetition, radiation, gradation, transition, and opposition.
TASK 3: DESIGN CHALLENGE
Each week, students are required to complete a design challenge that focuses on the application of the content covered in the readings presented in the textbook. Students are expected to present their best work and compile a curriculum portfolio that showcases their abilities in Housing & Interior Design content. For week seven's design challenge, students apply concepts related to color theory and the use of color in design to the redesign of a family's kitchen space. The final product is a sample board with color selections and accessories that will be included to brighten the space for the family.
