Re: Keep the report an a famous artist out of the classroom?

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. writes:
