displaying workI agree with Becky. I think every student's work should be displayed. (PreK - 8) I frequently remind students to do their best work, because quite likely it will be on display. Throughout the year I display many class projects in a group and include everyone's artwork from that project. In the spring art show, each child is represented with two of their best pieces from the year. (They select one and I select one)

  I personally choose to display every student's art work. Some students may not be as talented but are still proud and feel that they did a good job. For those that don't try so hard, I still display their work. It serves to "embarrass" them and I hope they will then try harder. I just don't like to choose one student's work above the other.

  I don't know if this is right or wrong...I guess I like everyone to be included. I have taught pre-K through 12 but am now just teaching 9-12.
