Re: [teacherartexchange] art curriculum

Guess what Julie- you will improve. My first year
teaching was a total bust- I know I didn't do well.
I've been teaching six years now and I absolutely love
it and even just completed my National Boards (and I
didn't think it was all that hard, either). The
organization stuff still eludes me, but the ideas for
projects keep coming in. I truly believe that if you
project an image to the kids that you are a passionate
teacher who enjoys what you are doing, they pick up on
it, and that is their reward. I don't give treats and
parties anymore. I show the kids that I love what I do
and that I value them and their work, and that is
reward enough. Good Luck! You will do great!
As far as curriculum, I have modelled mine loosely
around Foundations courses I took in college. I
include a variety of media as well as art history and
introductions to various cultures.
