Challenge:
The goal that will drive my work is learning how to write letters in calligraphy. I am making calligraphy writing.
Learning:
I expect to learn how to write calligraphy / I'm making this because I find it interesting and it will improve my handwriting.
I'll be challenged because it is hard to write calligraphy.
It will stretch me to learn how to write in different styles with different ink.
Materials:
Ink, calligraphy pens, calligraphy books. My mom will purchase this all on amazon.
Main Steps:
Steps:
  • Purchase the materials
  • Read the book and watch youtube videos to learn the alphabet
  • Start writing letters and words
I'll document my progress beyond journals by the actual papers with calligraphy on them.
  • I used steps 2 3 and 4 of the inquiry.
Time:
Until the end of the quarter.
Resources:
  • Sophia, Ellie, Alaina, and Alexandra are all doing this project.
  • Videos on the internet and calligraphy books.
  • I'll develop my PLN by being able to write in different ways.
Difficulties:
It will be difficult learning how to use the pens and to write the letters.
It could fail if I cannot figure out how to write the letters.
Sharing:
Sharing/Teaching/Paying It Forward
  • I will give people the drawings with calligraphy to show what i have learned..
  • Who is your target audience?
Evaluation:
I'll define success by being able to write sentences in calligraphy.
You can evaluate my success if my calligraphy looks how its supposed to.
It is visible to others because you can just look at the writing to see how it looks.
“What are you making?” “Why are you making this?” and “Who is it for?”
I am making calligraphy. I am making it for myself. I am making this so my handwriting will improve and I'll learn things in calligraphy.
