Welcome to my Home Page
Hello, and welcome to Mrs. Davenports' ceramics class.
I teach four sections of Ceramics 1-2, one sections of Ceramics 3-4, and one section of ceramics 5-6 this year. I use the Canvas website for all my classes. The students have a sign-in code which allows them to connect with our classroom documents, assignments and tests. You can find the copy of our class syllabus in Canvas.
This year in ceramics, students will learn about techniques used to create clay projects and understand how to begin a project from start to finish. I also include opportunities for students to learn how to critique art, and use correct art vocabulary based on the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design. I incorporate English language written assignments on all my projects and when possible incorporate math skills.
Our ceramics program will be guided by our Professional Learning Community. Sandra Day O'Connor will work collaboratively with Bolder Creek, and Mountain Ridge High School, to create a "Best Practices Curriculum" for all ceramics students.
My goal is to engage your student, and guide them to lean, understand, and be able to create various projects using several hand building techniques. My students success is my ultimate goal. I provide many opportunities for students to practice and resubmit projects anytime during the semester. Please have your student ask for assistance or schedule a time for tutoring.
If you have any questions about the lessons in my classroom, please feel free to email me. I do have office hours on Wednesdays. and Thursdays after school from 2:30-3:30. The best way to contact me is by email, Jeff.Davenport@dvusd.org.
