What about obtaining a photo of the teacher and dividing it up using a graph
system and have the students then each draw/shade or paint a portion. 18 x
24" paper works well for this. It can then be all put together and hung
somewhere as a tribute to the teacher who is ill and struggling.....
I am sure if you are an art teacher you know the method I am referring too.
But in case you are another type of teacher who is just asking this list for
advice--please let us know and one of us will explain this project in more

Subject: [teacherartexchange] Substitute Plans for very ill art teacher
I am creating substitute plans for an art teacher who is very ill. He is in
hospital, and the students have not had an opportunity to deal with his
all. I am looking for lesson plans that will help create positive energy and
support for this very beloved teacher, and help the students create a
supportive community in his absence. Does anyone have any sources or
suggestions for lesson plans etc. that would relate to this situation? There
about one month left in the school year, and I have a great deal to do in
interim, I am worried about missing a very teachable moment.
