Many thanks Linda!! for the tip on making a chart and dropping the power
points into it. I have also starting doing power points for many lessons.
I only add text if I might be having a sub who needs help leading a
discussion. I did try something different with 3rd graders this week who
beginning a unit on still life (what is the plural of that anyway?)I had
lots of images of still life paintings but about every 5 I inserted the
intitial slide that gave a definition of the term. It got to be funny for
them to read that over each time-but I bet they will know it when they get
quizzed on it. I think it addresses multiple learning styles when they
hear it and see it in print! I also like to add student art work to
thepower point after we have started into the project. I loop it and let
it continue to run while they are workig so they can reference back to it.
I can't wait to get to school tomorrow to organize all my ppt on the chart!
thanks again Linda-and I echo your sentiments about this list. I feel like
I should write a book "Everything I Ever Learned about Teaching Art I
Learned on the Artsednet!"
