My first day..besides reading the rules.. and telling the students about myself.. I hand out to the students a questioniare to be filled out.. whats your favorite movie, whats your favorite color, your favorite artist etc... on the back of this handout I tell them to draw a picture of yourself and to add detail.. the second day is when we get into making a portfolio and putting a design on the cover. I have been doing this for the past three years.. keeps the students busy while I circulate the room getting to know the students.
I inform students that the portfolio will be graded.
