- Hope everyone was able to stay warm this long weekend.
- Your Midterm lesson plan AND your Student Specific Studies document will both be due on Friday of this week. I want to give you as much time for both planning your own projects out, and to make sure everyone has reflection time for the midterm.
- Mr. Cronin is on some Instagram kick and really thinks his kids can “out like” our Pins. Let’s prove him wrong. Get anyone you can to like our pins instead of his. This has no weight on anything, just inner CAWD banter.

9:45 Midterm – Requirements
TODAY – Today I want to really see everyone practice what they are presenting. This doesn’t mean screaming out to the class while everyone is trying to work. But have a dry run through. Start thinking of the order of your presentation. How will you intro? How will you discuss new knowledge? How will you engage us into your content?
Rubric – Some of you were asking for a rubric on the midterm. Here is a basic outline.
Here are your requirements for your Midterm. It will be a teaching of your choice roughly 20-25 mins long. I will go through step by step on what I want you all to have as deliverables.
step 1: topic
Choose an area you feel most comfortable with. Don’t want to stand in front of the room and have things blow up (I know the pain). You must verify with me your topic. It must be something we can do in our space (no painting…).
Examples: Animation (walking) – Photography (tilt Shift) – After Effects (music/effects)
step 2: lesson plan
Here is the real “technical” part to the Midterm. You HAVE to fill out a lesson plan that outlines the whole process. What are we going to learn? What are we going to gain from this presentation? How long will the whole thing take? Beginning, middle and end. What materials will you need? And lastly, how did it all go?
Here is a template for your lesson plan.
step 3: materials
What materials are you going to need? This may mean you don’t need anything. Photoshop, After Effects or FL Studios may be the only thing you need. In this case, you don’t leave this section on your lesson plan blank, you must fill it in with the programs you need.
If you need things the class does not have, this is your time to get these ready. If you need cameras, this is your time to tell me how many, what parts, ect. I don’t want you showing up 30 mins before your lesson saying “I need 12 cameras stat!”
step 4: prep
Practice, please practice. You will need to fill at least 20 mins. Don’t let this be so awkward we crawl underneath our desks. You will be standing in front of all of us, being as professional as possible.
You will only have a set amount of time, time management is huge. If 20 minutes goes by and we haven’t even gotten to the project yet, it wasn’t well managed.
step 5: presentation
There will be a schedule posted on Monday telling you all who goes when. I don’t want to give you this now because if you are the person who goes last on Friday, you may not even start to think about this until Thursday night. I want you all to put a good amount of thought into this.
You will have minimum 20 mins and maximum 25 minutes to give your lesson. You must stay professional. No bursting out laughing because you said something funny.
