Individualized Learning Package about Etching.
Sauer, Michael J.
An individualized learning package provides step-by-step instruction in the fundamentals of the etching process. Thirteen specific behavioral objectives are listed. A pretest, consisting of matching 15 etching terms with their definitions, is provided along with an answer key. The remainder of the learning package teaches the 13 steps of the process in the following sections: preparing the plate, applying the hard ground, drawing the image, stopping-out the back side, using acid, cleaning after biting, heating the plate, inking, wiping, preparing the paper, using the press, removing the print, and cleaning after printing. Each section lists supplies and tools needed and gives the steps of instruction. Several checkpoints (inspections by the instructor) are provided for in the course of the learning package. The evaluation consists of taking both the plate and the print to the instructor for a final checkpoint. Three books on etching and printmaking are listed in the brief bibliography. This document is part of a collection of materials from the Iowa Area Education Agency 7 Teacher Center project. (EM)
