Teaching graphics to year 9

8 May 2004, 9:17 AM in Teaching Computing

Well, I'm now two weeks into my 1st four-week teaching prac. Things are going well, I've got a year 7 metalwork class (actually, I'm just teaching them how to use CAD), and a year 9 computing class doing graphics and year 10 computing class doing DTP. They're all pretty good kids, except when you get them on last double period Friday!

On that, does anyone have any good links to info on teaching graphics to year 9s (~ 14-15 year olds). I've got to teach them theory, but I'm looking for some activities that can give them some theory knowledge without having to just write heaps in their books. Any and all info is appreciated.

I suggest using youtube. It helped me a lot when trying to learn how to use those programs.
