[teacherartexchange] "In Between Projects"


Date: Mon Oct 25 2010 - 22:17:29 PDT

Hello All!

My name is Melissa and I am an art education major at UMD - the
University of Minnesota Duluth. I am just joining the forum and have
heard so many great things about it already; I can't wait to get

I am looking for some great advise and ideas on 'in between' or
'filler' projects, such as sketchbook assignments students do if they
finish an assignment early, or until the next assignment is
introduced. I'm very interested in hearing some effective ideas for
both elementary and secondary education! Even more so - i'm wondering
what the most effective method of introducing the 'filler' assignments
is. For example, would you explain the first day of class while you're
telling your students how your classroom is run, or would you wait
until the semester is undergo a while?

I greatly appreciate all responses and the time and effort taken to
help better fellow teachers and teacher candidates!

Thanks again,
Melissa Kirchoff
