6th Daily Work/Classroom Assignments

Daily Work/Classroom Assignments are 20% of your grade in Technology.  Daily work and assignments will consist of projects in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.  Students will also use the internet for projects such as learning about computer components and researching inventions.  Lessons are designed so students complete their work in class. Students who are unable to keep up due to misbehavior will be required to make up the work on their own.

(B)  THE C.R.A.P. DESIGN PRINCIPLES:  
      ♦  Demonstrate knowledge of the C.R.A.P. Design Principles by 
            (a) written quizzes
            (b) applying knowledge in the PowerPoint program

    
     ►  Contrast – if two elements are different, then make then DIFFERENT.  Think of this as the opposite of blending. 
                         Example: the background and font color are distincntly different.
     ►  Repetition – elements between and among slides repeat.  Think of this as consistency. 
                         Example: the font color on each slide is the same style and color.
     ►  Alignment – the intentional placement of text and graphics.  Think of this as associations.  
                         
Example: if three bullet points are under one heading, those three bullet points are all lined up the 
                         same way (such as left aligned).
     ►  Proximity – the nearness of elements.  Think of this as busy vs. blah and positive vs. negative space.  
                         Example: If the elements are crammed together, it is too busy and it lacks negative space.  
                          If the slide has too much negative space, it lacks appeal, therefore detracting from the presentation.
                          Our eyes and brain need negative space in order to know where to focus (the positive space), 
                          but too much negative space puts us to sleep!
