U.S. Virgin Islands UNIT: Altered Books - Tip Ins Lesson: Tip Ins - "Games People Play" Grade Level: High school (adaptable to middle school)
Objectives and Standards:
With the intent of creating a new book from a recycled one, students will design a page spread within the theme of "Games People Play" to be photocopied for everyone to have one page from each classmate. The challenge will be to after each copy in a way that makes it unique from the others. To complete this project, students will permanently attach the pages they receive from the other students into their books, also known as "tipping in". Standards: 1. HS. B&C, 2.HS.A&B, 3.HS.B, 5.HS.B,D,E, 6.HS.C
1. Students plan a design around the theme of "games people play" incorporating at least three different techniques such as collage, paint, pencil etc. into their design as well as a piece from an actual game into their composition.
HW: Four thumbnails (small sketches with ideas for your design)
2. Once design is completed students will obtain 13 photocopies to attach to "good quality" paper and then plan how to make each page individualized. For example, could hand color an element in each page, add a collage, etc.
3. Once pages are complete, students will do a page exchange, with everyone receiving one page from each classmate to glue into their books.
Tip In procedure
Remove pages except for ˝ inch tab. The pages are glued in between two tabs. It is advisable to place wax paper between the pages until the glue is dry. PVA (or regular Elmer's Glue) works well to glue the pages in. Brush the line of glue very thin.
