Introduction/Set Induction (2 minutes):

If you were to go to the store to purchase your supplies for sewing project: how would you know what you needed to buy for your project? Where would you find the information? How would you know how to interpret the information found?

Inductive Thinking: Pattern Envelope and Instructions

Lesson Body (40 minutes)

Inductive Thinking: PHASE 1: Concept Formation (10 minutes): List (What did you see? Hear? Note?): Body measurements, Different dress views, Amount of fabric, Notions, types of fabric to use, place on fold, layout, piece identification, definitions of terms used, views, Group (What belongs together? On what criterion?): Use the markers to group the list into different categories. Some categories could be: what you need (pattern envelope), how to make it (instructions), Label (How would you label these groups?): Things that would help you get the things you need, and how to start the project PHASE 2: Interpretation of Data (20 minutes): Identify Critical Relationships (As you look at the names of the categories listed, what similarities or differences do you notice?): Why would it be important to use the information in found both on the back and the instructions Explore & Explain Relationships between Categories (Is any group more important than another?): Make Inferences about Categories (What conclusions might be drawn, how do conclusions impact your life, etc.?): PHASE 3: Application of Principles (10 minutes): Predict Consequences (What would happen if?): Didnt measure correctly? Measured in the wrong place? Used the wrong equipment? Support Predictions (Why do you think this would happen?): Have you ever tried to make an outfit without Verify Predictions (What would it take for this to be generally true or probably true?):

Transition (2 minutes):
Turn in papers

Summary/Closure (5 minutes):
The outside of the pattern envelope will tell you how much fabric, what type of fabric, and what notions you will need to start a project. On pattern instructions you will find patterns view, layout, and general instructions.

The students will turn in the lists they made of things that are important on the pattern envelope and the pattern instructions.
