Sharon, I had 1 Art 4 student in a huge class of Art 1 kids, he was in
independent study and highly self motivated, and I got permission for him to
use a cd player & headphones. The kids were fascinated by his work, and his
dedication to it - he was a great asset to the class without ever opening his
mouth, however toward the end of each class he would take off his headphones
and talk to any kids who had migrated to see what he was doing that week. I
have had other Art4 in Art 1 classes, and I consider myself a babysitter for
a jobless senior, because they cause more trouble than they are worth... :-)
they have to be working and deserve the priviledge - yes, we are a dumping
ground...
