This guide for an elective quinmester calligraphy course describes it as an exploratory course in the creation of original works using advertising design as the source of the techniques and processes. Intended for grades 7 through 12, the course places particular emphasis on developing the elements of design: line, shape, color, value, and texture, through the use of a wide variety of two-dimensional media. Course content includes activities to facilitate mastery of basic lettering style, application of design elements layouts, and creative interpretations and expressive use of calligraphy. Significant events and people in the historical development of written symbols are also investigated. Some of the course objectives are that the student will be able to: 1) manipulate pens, brushes, and other tools to produce a consistent alphabet; 2) apply the elements of design in the layout of a calligraphic design plate; and 3) relate calligraphic production of visual symbols to the areas of advertising design and commercial art. Activities to facilitate achievement of objectives are suggested. A variety of general teaching suggestions and resources for students and teachers are included. (JLB)
