I wrote this post a couple of weeks ago. It was rejected! I have just
figured out how to send it in "simple text", so I'm resending!
I have two "isolation" desks in my middle school classroom. We call them
"private art lessons". Children may volunteer or be placed in "private art
lessons" by the teacher. Some have private art lessons for a day, Once in a
while someone gets placed there for a week! Usually my students find themselves
in private art lessons when they fall behind on an assignment, usually
because of too much socialization!! Sometimes a kids just wants a reprieve from
his/her tablemates! Its funny how the kids always remind me if "Johnny" is
assigned to private art lessons!!!!!
