Make Teaching Easier!

This site is made for you to use!

PURCHASE USE OF THE FULL SITE FOR ONE YEAR!

Sometimes the job of teaching seems overwhelming, with all of the paperwork, duties, accountability . . . and, oh, did I mention teaching? The purpose of this site is to make the job easier if you teach a Basic Ceramics and Pottery Class.

Especially for Teachers

You can save and modify:
Formal Lesson Plans with Quizzes and Assessment Tools

Handouts and Worksheets

Straightforward Review Activities for Substitutes

You may save these to your computer, modify or not, and print as many as you need for your classes.

Also included are PowerPoint Presentations and links to the works of ceramic artists, contemporary and historical. Notes about the work on the presentations can be printed or read as students view the work. No slide projector to worry about and very little preparation time required.

Activities for students to do on the computer are:

Multiple Choice Quizzes

Scavenger Hunts

Matching Image to Vocabulary Activities

Interactive Crossword Puzzles and More!

Use of the online site can be purchased for use with your students if you have Internet access.

Currently on-line for free are Units 1, 2 and parts of 3. They are a good example of what comes with the purchase of the site. Access to the whole site can be purchased for one year for $25. I've kept the price down for 6 years now. Units 1-4 are very complete, but Unit 5 is shorter; I'm still adding to it.

The small cost helps me to cover the costs of upkeep -- server and software costs. It's actually quite a job keeping all of the links active.

Only $25 for one year. Terms of Use.

I will email instructions to you for access to the paid site.

ONLY $25 FOR 1 YEAR'S ACCESS

VALUE OF SITE
Using this site with your students saves a lot of school dollars as you do not have to buy a text. Personally, I found that the texts were usually not very interesting reading for students and were not very practical in ceramics class as students always had dirty hands and usually got clay all over the pages of the book. This site started out as an effort to solve those problems. The extra budget money (not spent on more texts) can go to supplies or more resource books for your classroom library. Handouts can be printed out and given to students and thrown away if too dirty to keep. And my activities have always engaged the students more than the books did.

So there you go: cheaper, more convenient and more interesting to students! These units contain the basics of handbuilding with clay. You will have use to the site for at least a year.

Thanks in advance. You will be getting great value for your money.

I will email instructions to you for access to the paid site.
