I teach at a middle school and have vary small classes; last year was my
first year teaching. My principal came by for a "pop" observation the day
the students were drawing the grids over their self portrait photographs and
the corresponding grid on their paper. I had already presented the lesson
twice that morning. Wouldn't you know they were stumped. My evaluation went
smoothly. But from that day on, I incorporated rulers and measuring tasks
in a the lesson plan as often as possible.

I rounded up miter boxes, and all the tools. The students built their
own stretcher frames:
"success comes in cans" "measure twice cut once" "over so it so
you don't have to do it over" etc.
They all accomplished constructed rectangles. Their paintings were great
but the rectangles were a fabulous triumph.
