For those of you struggling with starting work on your career plan, below are three samples that might help you construct your plan:
We'll be utilizing Google Docs to edit templates to create the text for your original documents. I would recommend using your student Google drive account for these documents so that you can share them with staff members here for evaluation/input.
After these documents are finished we will be modifying them using Adobe InDesign. For this, I am going to ask you to research some font pairings that you think will work for this professional correspondence. The website Just My Type will be helpful with dealing with fonts that are available from Adobe TypeKit. Adobe's TypeKit website could be another great resource to help you make font decisions. Listen to the pros, it will make your life easier and your work look better. I'd like to see you create a type pairing sample sheet like shown below:
Competencies We will be Utilizing:
Over the next few weeks we are going to be working on remediating some basic Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign skills to help our Seniors (and eventually everyone) prepare for the upcoming NOCTI evaluations. Please download the following files that we'll be using in class:

In addition to this work I am asking you to create a recycled art project. We have a number of supplies that could be used for this and the project gives you lots of room for choice. Pinterest could be a great resource to come up with ideas for a project that you could choose.
