You don't see your students all year long? You see them for blocks of a week
or so? What about the students you see at the beginning of the year? They
don't get art the rest of the year? Only that one week? or one week rotating
so that you would see each class for 9 weeks out of the year? I dont'
understand....it seems to me they are getting short changed. I see my students about
30-36? times a year (depending on holidays/snow days/assemblies and such).
Once a week....does it come out to the same number of hours? Do they remember
what you taught them many weeks before so that you can build on that?
