Description of Drafting Assignments

At the beginning of each quarter the students will learn the basic techniques involved in drafting.  The following are the different assignments with links to the instructions that are given to the students to complete the drafting assignments.  At the conclusion of the drafting assignments, the students will bring all drafting assignments home and return one drawing signed by the parent and returned to school for 20 points.


The students will draw a total of 4 sketches, two of which will include dimensions.  The students are each given a worksheet with the drawings and the dimensions.  By using a piece of graph paper, they will recreate the drawing without the use of a straight edge.  The assignment is worth 20 points.  The criteria for grading includes straight lines, proper line weight, correct size, and correct lettering.

The following link is the handout given to do the assignment.
