Relative to discipline problems, Amanda said: "Students are required to
complete so many projects, and sometimes they have little say in what they
want to create." How true! Some students act out because they absolutely hate
what they are working on - it's frustrating, makes no sense, is boring to
them and so on. Since changing to a choice-based artroom, I'm thrilled to
report that discipline problems have significantly diminished. Giving choices
allows children to select materials they prefer and make art about subjects
that interest them. Students who are actively engaged and invested in their
work are too busy to cause trouble.
