Yeah, sometimes you wonder why some kids sign up for art. The counsellors
put them in your class because they have a hard time placing them anywhere
else. They can be destructive, don't work and bother others. But somehow
you've got to nurse them along and incorporate them into the class. When you
get several of these students (usually guys) in a class, you've got a real
problem because you can't trust them with materials and it starts to make
things tough on the rest of the kids who really enjoy the art projects. When
you're teaching art in school, no matter the grade level, that seems to be
the nature of the beast. Fortunately, they're usually greatly in the
minority, but can be a real pain, nonetheless.
