Course Description: Introduction to Fashion and Textiles is an introductory course for those students
interested in academic enrichment or a career in the fashion, textile, and apparel industry. This course
addresses knowledge and skills related to design, production, acquisition, and distribution in the fashion,
textile, and apparel arena. The course includes the study of personal, academic, and career success; careers in
the fashion, textile, and apparel industry; factors influencing the merchandising and selection of fashion,
textile, and apparel goods and their properties, design, and production; and consumer skills. A project-based
approach integrates instruction and laboratory experiences including application of the elements and
principles of design; selection, production, alteration, repair, and maintenance of apparel and textile products;
product research, development, and testing; and application of technical tools and equipment utilized in the
industry. Visual arts concepts will be addressed. Direct, concrete mathematics proficiencies will be applied.
Lessons and common assessments for this course have been developed collaboratively using best
practice as a guide and Indiana State Standards as a framework. Students will be expected to complete
formative evaluations and final summative exams at the end of each semester. The formative
assessments are designed primarily to inform instruction, giving the teacher a measuring stick of the
student’s understanding of the essential outcomes of the course content. The Final Exams are
summative in nature and will be worth 15% of the student’s overall grade.
Essential Outcomes:

Supplies Needed:
1. Colored pencils for sketching
2. Folder
3. Required to purchase patterns, fabric and necessary notions for three projects.
4. Basic Sewing Kit (Wal-Mart or JoAnn’s)
Class Expectations:
1. PARTICIPATION IN LAB IS MANDATORY. All students are expected to participate each and every day in
the sewing lab. Due dates will be set for supplies. If a student does not have their supplies on the required
due date, the student will be given an alternative assignment. The student will not receive credit for the
original sewing project, but will receive credit towards his/her participation grade.
2. PASSING SEWING READINESS TEST. You will be expected to pass a sewing readiness test before
participating in lab. The test’s content will include: identifying notions and equipment, parts of the sewing
machine, and sewing seam samples. If you fail to pass the test, you will not have the privilege of sewing in
lab for the semester and will be given alternative assignments.
3. BELL RINGERS/EXIT SLIPS. There will be daily bell ringers and exit slips. The first 9 weeks prompts will
be over the daily objective for the class. The second 9 weeks prompts will be over your goals to accomplish
in class and whether or not you accomplished them. You will answer the prompt to the best of your
knowledge at the beginning of class and then answer the same prompt at the end of class after we have
covered the material. Be prepared to share your answers in class. I will also collect these at the end of the
week to assess what you have learned and (if needed) what material needs to be retaught.
4. TALKING AND GOSSIP IS LIMITED. Students are expected to be working on their construction projects in
lab rigorously. Talking should be at a minimum. Students who do not follow this expectation will be given
an alternative assignment and will not be able to participate in lab construction projects.
5. COOPERATIVE AND RESPECTFUL ATTITUDES. This class will require you to work with others on
projects and reports. You will need to keep an open mind and listen to other points of view. I expect you to
participate in discussions actively, but be mindful that not everyone shares your same view. Constructive
discussions are welcome in class, but not at the expense of someone else. I do not tolerate disrespectful
attitudes! The golden rule applies…”You respect me and I will respect you.
Classroom expectations: I have very high expectations of you, which include:
1. Be mindful of all NACS and CHS rules. [See handbook.]
2. Be on time and in your seat with needed materials when the tardy bell rings.
3. Be prepared for class. Bring a pencil and paper.
4. Be respectful of yourself, teacher and others. This includes using common courtesy and remaining on
task.
5. Refrain from distracting behaviors in class. Some examples though not inclusive are; grooming, candy,
snacks, or any other food or beverage not related to lab preparation.
6. Socializing during group work is inappropriate. This is a time for you to practice critical skills and not a
time to play and not talk about what you did last weekend.
7. Doing work for another class is also inappropriate. You will have materials for another class confiscated
[You may get them from me at the end of the day.]
8. The bell does not dismiss class, I do! Remain in your seat until I have dismissed you from class.
