Intermediate & Advanced Fashion
Today is the first day of the new unit, Embroidery. It is the first day of my 3-day lesson on embroidery and stitches. This lesson is an introduction to their embroidery project. Some reflections of today’s lesson:
- Time management: We did not get to actually begin to sew the 2 stitches because we took too much time prepping and setting up for actual sewing. Also, we did not get to the summary/evaluation exit ticket questions because of lack of time.
- Preparedness: I should have pre-prepped all materials and have them ready at the commencing of class. My mentor and I had to stop to cut threads and cut burlap fabric pieces.
- Differentiation: I noticed that some students were done before others and went ahead to start sewing because they were a little advanced and maybe already had some background knowledge. For those students, I should have had the video up on google classroom for them to access and continue on their own.
As a result of this, I had to change up my lesson plan for the next day, my observation lesson.
Students are introduced to the “Ocean Challenge”. Students are to create sea creatures using recycled materials provided to them. For every sea creature submitted, $4 will be given in support of ocean conservation and programs supporting youth in coastal communities.
