I strongly believe that cross-curriculum collaborations enhance student learning.
I have collaborated with HS Visual Art students, teaching them how to use Design Technology to make their installation and sculptural ideas come to fruition.
I have also collaborated with Grade 3 students in their “Dream Time” unit. In this unit, students were tasked with designing something of their choosing for their classroom. Two students I worked with sought to design a coffee table for their teacher. Over a period of 6 weeks, these students would come to me and I taught them how to measure accurately, drill holes, install screws, glue pieces together and how to sand and apply stain and lacquer.
