In my elementary art teaching situation I only see the students two times
each month for one hour each time. We meet every other week. So, that means
that I see each student, on average, 17-18 times total each school year. I spend
no more than 3 class periods (hours) on any given project. Most of my 4th,
5th and 6th grade lessons are just 2 hours. My 1st -3rd graders have trouble
remembering things over the span of 2 weeks, so they are normally "one dayers."
Ah, if only I could have my students for art one hour every week...I cannot
imagine the possibilites!
