Stained Glass and Mosaics in High School: How to Create and Continue a Glass Curriculum in a Secondary School

In 2018, I was challenged as a high school educator to create a glass curriculum on a shoe string budget that was to start the following year.  I immediately sought out information on how to begin a successful program and found little on the subject both locally and nationally.  So, as part of my Masters Degree capstone project from the University of Florida, I created a practical curriculum on a budget that would take beginner students from no glass experience to creating large panel windows in stained glass and in 3 months.  After 4 years using this curriculum at Timpanogos High School in Orem, Utah, I am prepared to present the successes and pitfalls when using glass in a classroom of teenagers! This presentation by Powerpoint will include lesson plans, budget ideas for working with supplies in large orders, how to present the concept to administrators and ways to engage students successfully.  There will be a 15 minute period for questions from the audience at the end of the presentation. The goal is that participants will walk away with a working plan on starting a stained glass and mosaics program in their schools, homes or studios successfully.
