1. Notes and Reflection: (/10 pts)
10: substantial and clear notes; reflection has detailed descriptions of the why, what, how and where of the use of at least 5 design elements.
5: minimal notes, maybe words with a dash and a 2-3 word description; reflection lists all 5 design elements and has two of the why, what, how and where
2. Prototype: (/20 pts)
20: Prototype shows good use of class time, excellent detail, is visually pleasing and makes sense
15: Prototype is only ok; it is moderately pleasing, but it is not clear how design elements were used to communicate importance, hierarchy, meaning of the student.
10: Prototype is a quick sketch with minimal effort; design elements are used but not in any clearly meaningful way.
LQ1: What am I learning today?
The student engages in the creative process, finds and solves problems, and pursues open-ended
inquiry through the production of artworks. The student develops aesthetic understanding
through the examination of his/her own art and the artwork of others.
LQ2: Read through linked articles. In AN, take notes on the element of design. Your task is to use what you have learned to design a home page for your digital portfolio and website. You are required to have tabs for: education, extracurriculars, portfolio of high school work, and AP Computer Science Principles. You are welcome to add other tabs such as photography, music, writing, sports, travel, etc.
Deliverables to be turned in:
1. Prototype: you may create an actual home page in Google Sites, Weebly, HTML, or another web page development app OR you may create a well-done sketch on paper or in a computer app that represents the webpage
2. In a word or Google doc, write a clear description of how you have used a minimum of 5 elements of visual design in your prototype. This is due in Google Classroom by the end of class.
Consider who you are and what you want to communicate to people about who you are on this home page. Be creative about the links for the above specified sub-pages; do not worry about the technical details of whether or not you could actually create this on a webpage. You will turn in your sketch on paper or through Google Classroom or your web page as a link through Google Classroom, as appropriate.
After we return, we will use Feldman's Model to assess each other's home pages, so keep this in mind.
LQ3: Demonstrate use and understanding of visual design and its application to computer science through both a prototype home webpage that uses said elements and through a written reflection that clearly describes their application in your prototype.
