Description

The innovative strategy for a flat patternmaking course was to incorporate a Gallery Walk for students to practice applying their knowledge of darts and dart equivalents as an in-class exercise. The purpose in introducing the Gallery Walk in the flat patternmaking class was to engage students in critical thinking and problem-solving about darts and dart manipulations. This Gallery Walk displayed pictures of darts and dart equivalents for students to identify. This allowed student to analyze the similarities and differences of darts and dart equivalents and determine the correct placement of the pictures within the gallery. The findings revealed the Gallery Walk helped students "better define darts and dart equivalents, recognize variations when using dart equivalents in garment designs,and ways to utilize dart equivalents in my original designs."
