area of expertise? I don't suppose any of the elementary classroom teachers I
work with are expert in the field of teaching communications. But I don't
think we art teachers should "leave" things to the classroom teachers; I think
we work together with them to educate the child.
When I have students report orally to the class, that is one more way for the
students to process the information, one more shot at their retaining the
information. I don't let it become a stressful situation- we keep
presentations short and have teams or pairs of presenters.
>What is this? "develop their presentation skills..master presenters"..
>is your area of expertise- communications? or is it the teaching of art?
>should we as art teachers leave this to the classroom teacher?
