Hello Wood Tech students and parents,
As you know, for this fall semester we are conducting all classes using a hybrid model. On the days when your child is not in school they will be completing assignments online and video conferencing with their class at the end of each day, all using Google Classroom. When in school they will be learning hands-on skills using various tools, materials, and equipment in accordance with all state, local, and district health and safety procedures.
In Construction and Wood Tech, students will learn the fundamentals of woodworking: taking measurements, creating drawings and plans, and material properties, as well as the technical processes of using various tools and machines to create a finished product. A few of the potential projects for this course are a toolbox, a cutting board, a pen, a picture frame, and a small independent project.
In Advanced Wood Tech 1, students will continue to practice the skills they learned in the previous course as well as develop new skills such as project planning, advanced joinery, project assembly, finishing techniques, and advanced power machine operations. A few of the potential projects for this course include a cabinet, an end table, and an independent project.
In Advanced Wood Tech 2, students will utilize all of the skills learned in the previous two courses while also building upon those through the design and creation of one semester long capstone project of their choice.
Grading for these courses will go as follows: Projects/Assessments - 30%, Participation - 60%, and Homework - 10%. All grades for this course will be posted on genesis only. Also, linked here is the schedule for groups A and B for when each group is in school or learning from home.
Please make sure to have your child continually check their email and Google Classroom, as all the materials relating to their assignments will be posted there. If you or they have any questions, please feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
