I agree....but when they have one hour of art per week (in some cases less!)
vs 5-6 hours of writing a week...I will be darned if I am going to teach
writing!!! I will use what they should already know to further their art
knowledge and I will teach them all the art stuff <very intellectual word>.
I believe in educating the whole child..but to tell me I should use my
precious hour to teach them what they should already know.....I will help
them, <I spelled a lot of words those days we worked on this project> achieve
what they are striving for...but I am not going to use my art time to TEACH
writing!
