Just wanted to share a thought on making disruptive students in art
write a report on an artist being seen by other students as also a
punishment when they do reports for art history.I also have done this
but with a twist. The reports that the disruptive students write, I use
a stationary form I make in Claris Works on which they need to fill in
facts such as birthdate, country from, style, etc.They must use complete
sentences and paragraphs which are 3 to 5 sentences long. Then their
reports are placed in an archive file that all students can use when
they are doing research for a class unit on art history. The students
name has been taken off of the report. When we do a class art history
unit the kids work in teams and create a HyperStudio Stack presentation
so it is quite different from the paper and pencil report. I also
explain that some students who are disruptive need to learn what we are
doing in art, but in a different way. We are painting, they will
research a painter, such as Seurat. I've also had them look up in a
dictionary 10 art words that they didn't know. ( I get the words from
the vocabulary in the back of a book such as, Emphasis Art) and write
the definitions.Any more thoughts? Thanks for all of your ideas so far.
