Quilting Across the Curriculum/Jackson Hole High School
Projects
Images of Students or their Work (typical).
The technique of the "Brown Bag" quilt is to
choose pieces of fabric from a bag and sew them
in that order. The randomness of this task proved
to be challenging.

assessment
In the Textile Arts class student participation in Quilting Across the Curriculum was assessed through conferences with the guest artist and district teachers working with students, reflective journals, group critiques, self-critiques, an art rubric, and feedback from the community. This combination of assessment practices increases students' thoughtfulness about their work. Their metacognition, pride in the precision and accuracy of their work, community connections, and collaborative thinking has made the art concepts and the state standards come alive. The concrete demonstrations of mastery give ample evidence of students meeting and exceeding those standards.
