Judie, I agree that some don't put a lot of effort in these when they are
done outside of class...a lot of times I have found that they were quickly
done before class to have something to turn in...but it's important for them
to do these. This semester, I plan to have them draw in their sketchbooks
the first 5 minutes or so of class and if they finish lessons early...or if
they just need a break from what they're working on.
