<< I feel very strongly about giving my students written semester and final

I too give a midterm and a final "exam" 50% written and 50% project. Last
year, my 1st year at this school, I discovered that they didn't have any
background in techniques, Elements and principles of design or critique. I
spent most of the year doing that through artist of the month, history
relative to the current project, observational drawing days. Each class had
to do one "ArtieFacts" paper on the artist of thier choice (almost) I have
over 100 artists and art periods written on popsicle sticks in a coffee can.
(The can of fate) they pull a stick out and that's what their research is
on. I usedd they same system for choosing a project for the exam. This way
I know how much of what"stuff: I need to have out. (It's also what happens
when you inherit a box of 5000 pop sticks!) Final is usually vocab, matching
and a critique.
