Re: mural management

Hi Mark,
   Give the students some white wax crayons and tell them to lay down a
thick layer on manilla paper. Then tell them to cut out high contrast photos
(without letters) from newspapers-- color comics work, too. Turn the image
over on to the wax layer and burnish well--you can use the round handle end
of scissors, wooden spoons, clay tools, whatever. The image from the
newsprint will transfer into the white crayon. You can have them create
captions, extend other ideas for images. The kids really get into the
physical aspects of preparing these transfers and you are free to
concentrate on your mural painters.

how to manage the mural painters out in the hall, while supervising the rest
of the class.
Any ideas for less teacher intensive projects with a high enough engagement
level that students would be able to work on out in the hall?
