Chemical Process

I recently taught a lesson on the chemical process of permanent wave. Students first viewed a power point on the chemical reaction, which takes place during the waving process. Next they divided up into groups of two. The students then had to take turns doing a consultation on one another. Their objective was to make sure the hair and scalp were healthy enough to tolerate a permanent wave. After this activity each student was instructed to look through a current magazine and choose a picture of one hairstyle. The students had to establish what type of perm and determine the size rod used to produce the style in the photo. Each student had to present his or her findings to the class. They made some very interesting presentations. My students enjoyed the lesson of consultation and role–play very much.

Angie I find that students really do like to role play. It can go on and on. My students take turns being the good stlylist and the bad stylist. Being the good client or the rude client. Some students like to put on a skit they are excited about acting it out. Sometimes I let them critique each other with the think-pare-share activity. Also allowing them to use the lab and all material neccessary to make it as realistic as possible. I go around and grade with a rubric when they role play with all the trimmings.
