Gabrielle - I'm HS, too (9 - 12, rotating AB block, 3 classes & 1 prep/day).
My only hard & fast rule is to avoid heavy content presentations on Fridays.
When the wrestlers & boys / girls bb are out of town, along with
cheerleaders, speech, etc., it just makes sense that Fridays are studio
I sympathize w/ you in "having a lot on the plate" - it's tough to know how
to balance it all. In general, I try to tie art history to projects, and
get in a half-day (45 min.) every two weeks. I try for a critique at the
middle and end of every project, which also aids in pacing & motivating
students to finish on time - this usually means a crit about every 2 weeks.
We do observational drawing or design exercises at the beginning of about
every other class, for around 10 - 15 minutes, sometimes longer.
Needless to say, this all breaks down with great frequency, esp. around the
time of our big Spring exhibition. This year I have visiting artists for
part of first semester, so it will all be up in the air! Hope this helps &
good luck w/ your recovery. - Dennis in Wyo.
