Most of them are football
players who have told me directly that they'll do
whatever they please in my class because it is "just
art" and therefore does not count towards eligibility.
It's a tough problem and I understand your stress. I think the sports
tie in is a good start as well as getting some outside help to help work
on their attitude ... coach, guidance counselor . But from past
experiences, that may not work if you don't have the support from those
other co workers that you should. Just be prepared. Art may be an
elective but in many schools, it's a "dumping ground".
Also FTI it is "just art"..... the designer of the Nike swish made 7.5
million dollars the first year his logo ran. His contract: every time
his logo was used he got a nickel..... Oh ya! It's just art all right!!!
And how great it is... in sooooo many ways! Wonder how much he's made
Good luck. Keep us posted. Donna
