    Introduction and Mental Set
    Involve the students in a brief discussion of the use of asymmetric triangle
    arrangements, including appropriate occasions and locations.


    1.    Discuss the proper shape and dimensions of asymmetric triangle
          arrangements. Identify the proper placement of the focal point.
          Study and evaluate examples from the photo file.

    2.    Step-by-step procedure for performing skill

          Teacher demonstrates making an asymmetric triangle, reviewing
          steps while making it.

   4.     Students perform skill
          Students make an asymmetrical triangle arrangement, critiquing own
          work with teacher guidance.

   5.     Practice to standard
          Students correct problems with arrangement and complete it.


          Review use of asymmetrical triangle arrangement and technique for
