Hi All,
New discussion item, imagine you are going into a school to teach elementary
You can write your own curriculum, but here's the rub.
You have grades 1-5. In your first year what do you cover ??
Do you try to catch up all grades and do the basics ??
How do you start Art History ?
What cultures do you feel are a must to include ??
Every art teacher has their own take on this...
I'm feeling a need to revamp, reorganize and regroup.
Let the discussion begin !
Thanks for being here, all those who discuss and contribute, and lurk :)
Christine Besack :)
ps... anyone doing Crizmac tour this Summer, I'm debating the Arizona one :)
