Fast Lessons with Lucy
10 am – 12 pm

How do you fit clay into your classroom? Into your kiln? Into a one-hour class? NCC Teaching Artist Lucy Yogerst will impart fast and furious favorites from her bank of lesson plans geared to last 1 to 1.5 hours. Each lesson imparts basic handbuilding skills to students. Lucy’s wit and deep knowledge are always engaging and are bolstered with educational ceramic rhetoric. You will walk away laughing with an appreciation of small-scale creations, a bunch of new sayings to use in your classroom, some new lesson plans, and your own clay creation.


Lesson Plan Sharing
1 – 4 pm

Are you feeling like you need to dust off those old lesson plans you’ve been using forever? Always watching, looking, and scoping out new potential projects for your classroom? Want to hear what your peers are implementing in the classroom? Together we can do more! In an exchange of lesson plans, you will leave with an expanded curricular repertoire. Amplify existing projects by problem-solving with your peers in this session. Everyone will have about 15 minutes to present a clay lesson they have used or are planning. Ask questions. Discuss the curriculum. Identify ways to link your teachings to the Minnesota graduation standards. Harness new ideas. Gather feedback. Talk about best practices. All in a communal effort to grow your list of lessons to use in the classrooms. Whether you have a rock-star project or are looking to refine a new idea – this is a great opportunity for group learning.
