So I applied for a Junior Interior Designer Instructor position at Moraine Valley Community College and I believe that I have a pretty good chance at getting the job, but I have a few concerns. The purpose of this class is to have a Interior Design professional teach what an Interior Design career is all about; this class is for children ages 10-13. I am obviously not a teacher, but I have a degree and real world experience in Interior Design, so I am asking the help of all you teachers out there!!
I need to come up with ideas for a new description of the class (I am under the impression that I get to create a new curriculum for the class, along with a supplies and materials list.) The class is only for four weeks and there is only 8 sessions. I know exactly what I want to teach them, what I think they should bring to class and what the goal/end result of the class is to be; I am just not sure what learning level children are at between the ages of 10-13. Do they understand measurement, concept, color theory, etc. These are all things I want to cover along with design terms, drawings and tools!
I want to learn the proper way of creating and presenting a lesson plan so that I am prepared for my interview. If there is any one out there who has any ideas and /or tips for me, I would greatly appreciate it!!
Thank you all!!
