Congratulations, Maggie!!!!! Can't tell you what to do with them, though!
> In the space of one week I saw a tiny ad for an art teacher, checked out
> the school, had a formal interview Monday, and was just notified I'm in.
> That's the good news. The scary news is, it's grades 5-8. The 7-8
> graders will have had a year or two of art from the previous teacher,
> but not the 5-6ers. My question: WHAT DO I DO WITH THEM?!
> I think I'll have the 5-6ers for just nine weeks; not sure about the
> 7-8s. I would love to know your basic scope and sequence with each of
> these four grade levels. I can figure out lessons myself if you'll give
> me an idea what to introduce--concepts and media--at what grade level,
> and at what point in the nine weeks. I've tended to go more for depth
> than breadth at the HS level, but guess I'll be doing more introductory
> stuff with the younger ones?
> I hope to do some collaborations with the other teachers. The principal
> seems very supportive and says he'll back me up if all they want from me
> are my supplies or 25 jack o'lanterns by the end of the day ;)
> Maggie, on the verge of panic (teachers start on Monday!!!)
