Background for Teachers

Teacher's should be familiar with the information covered on the note outline concerning the four different types of pattern and how you identify each.

Student Prior Knowledge

Students should be familiar with the note-taking process.

Intended Learning Outcomes

Students should be able to identify the four different types of pattern and find correct representations of each pattern type using wallpaper as their medium.

Instructional Procedures

Have students take out their notes from previous lessons. Students should then take notes from the overhead note outline as you lecture and discuss the four different types of pattern and how to identify each type. Show examples of each type of pattern to help student further understand the concept. Hand out the Wallpaper Pattern assignment sheet. Go over all directions as a class. Show the class an example assignment so they know exactly what is expected of them. Go over the grading outline to help kids determine how points will be earned. Stress the importance that they READ and FOLLOW their assignment sheet directions closely. Give students the rest of the class period to work on their assignment.

Assessment Plan

Each correct sample is worth 5 points (25 total). The one-inch border on each page is worth 10 points (2 points per page if you need to break it down). The remaining 15 points are for neatness (black ink, block letters, labels where they are supposed to be, etc..).
