Hello everyone. My name is Sarah Grow. I'm one of those newly introduced
pre-service teachers ya'll are worried about. :c) I have a suggestion for the
rowdy bunch. Do you think thay would be able to handle themselves outside for
a bit? If so, you might wish to explore the work of Jackson Pollack. Explain
the method behind his apparent madness and let your students expiriment with
it themselves outside where the property destruction would be minimal. With
this project, your getting the best of several worlds. You are helping the
learn about an artist and then applying that knowledge to a project. They'll
love going outside and being able to get up off their chairs. I hope this helps!
