Lesson Plans

Re: art on a cart

I just finished 3 years on a cart and this year I will have an art room in
each of my 3 buildings! I promised myself I would not compromise on the
lessons (complexity, media, etc.) while on the cart, after all, the kids
should not be penalized. However, I noticed that all planning, preparation,
introducing the lesson, setting up in the classroom, all this took a lot
longer. This translated into less actual studio/work time in each class
period, so less material covered over the course of a year. I just had to
make my peace with that and forge on anyway. So, this year, in my rooms, my
plans won't have to change a great deal, but my time and the kids time will
be better spent. Being on the cart forces sharpening those organizational
skills to the max- good luck!!
