Introduction to Set Design *Hyperdoc

Created by Lea Marshall

The purpose of this unit is to give students an introduction to independent learning as well as an overview of Set Design. Students will apply their knowledge throughout, and the unit culminates in a group activity.

This unit is delivered in hyperdoc format. What does that mean? A hyperdoc is an interactive tool that encourages digital learning. In this case, students are given a document on a subject, and there they can read articles, watch videos, do some independent research, and apply what they’ve learned. Because they’re working on their own, students are in charge of their own pacing.

Before you start the unit, ensure you read the Teacher Guide first. It will give you clear instructions on how to distribute the hyperdoc format and make it easy for you and your students.

Teacher Guide
The teacher guide outlines how to share the hyperdoc format of this unit with your students, with clear step by step directions. It is imperative that you download and read this guide before accessing any of the materials for the unit.
1: Introduction to Set Design
This hyperdoc unit is designed for students to work through at their own pace. There are five levels that students work through independently: Level 1: The Introduction. Level 2: Dream Room Project. Level 3: Become a Design Expert - students learn more about colour theory, design elements such as line and shape, types of set design, and set pieces most often used in set design. Level 4: A Set Designer License Test which applies everything students have gone through thus far. Level 5: The culminating project which has students designing a set for a song, book or play.
2: Links for Design Expert Slideshows
These links are only needed if you wish to edit the 'Design Expert' slideshows that are embedded within the main hyperdoc. They will prompt you to make a copy. You will need to redo those links on your own copy of the main hyperdoc before you share with your students.
