Re: [teacherartexchange] sub plans that rock!

        Do you get an art sub ? Can you count on the same sub each day ?
What level do you teach ? Do you have the students M - F ?
When I was gone for a day or two, (I taught 6-8 grade and had my
students all week) I left written worksheets based on reading
Scholastic Art magazines. I had 25 years of back issues in the
classroom. Each year I wrote question sheets to follow each
new issue. They came in very handy if I missed a day or two.
It's such a great Art History resource as well. This was a great
resource but I would not use it for a week.
        Subs come with such varied backgrounds. Many don't
follow procedures well. But my students knew my routine using
the magazines. I had students assigned to pass out and collect the
magazines. My students knew to fasten the completed work
into their art notebooks, etc. So even if the sub did not help
the class, the work still got done. My classes knew I'd check
upon return and ask questions about the artist they had read
about. Check the magazine out at:
