LESSON PLANS-Philip Simmons
This video is a short example of an interview with Mr. Simmons and 5th graders at Buist Academy in Charleston, SC in 2005. The longer version will be included in the "Extras" portion of the interactive educational DVD to accompany the Lesson Plans.
CURRENT STATUS OF LESSON PLANS:
The Foundation's current Lesson Plans are in need of updates. The new plans will be media-rich and technologically driven allowing students to learn directly from the life and art of Mr. Simmons.
EXPLANATION OF LESSON PLANS:
• Plans include updating the Lesson Plans to accompany the DVD and book as an option for educators (K-12).
• The following subjects will be represented: Art, Language Arts, Civics/History, Math, and Science. The lesson plans reflect the knowledge needed to produce completed ironworks.
• The students will work hands-on through the exercises which include gate design details (mathematics), preservation and restoration (historical).
