I agree! Good teaching involves knowing when to intervene and when to let the
flow take over. When and how to do this varies greatly with the individual
teacher. My favorite days are those when I can sit and work with the
kids.....and the critique is much more effective when the student can step
back and assess, with his/her classmates' help. Reading to students can be
very effective, especially if the material is related to the topic being
taught. Why isn't using appropriate literature integrating language arts into
the art curriculum? Listening skills are part of the WI language arts
standards. Maybe I am missing something?
