Re: Engaging High School Students

Random thoughts-
show them examples of current exhibiting artists work, compare that
work to the older work you are showing, use the internet, bring in a
visiting artist, preferably a hip, young one, make examples that
incorporate pop culture that thay are into, watch a little MTV to get
some ideas, make it matter to them personally.

 your thoughts please:
I just watched my student teacher try to engage our students in a well

though out and well planned presentation on relief sculpture. 2
culturally relevant slides for the students to look at. Clay relief
sculptures to follow. They were pathetically unengaged. She used the
traditional show the slides up front and asked questions. Does anyone
have other strategies on how you might engage Urban High School
students in learning?????????????(I know, not a new topic)
