I have 6 to 7 classes every day. 1st and 2nd have 30 minutes and 3rd-
6th have 40 minutes. I tried using a rubric to grade their pictures, but
it took too long to go through the check list for each student. I put on
the board for each lesson, a check list for them to follow. When I grade
about 32 projects in each class, I have NO time to use a rubric. In my
head I know what an A looks like, a B, etc. If they want to know why I
got a B, we check the check list on the board. I don't have time for
rubrics. Great for High School and maybe Junior High, but IMPOSSIBLE for
Elementary Art. Would like to hear from my other fellow ELEMENTARY Art
Teachers on this subject. I really don't have any time to grade in the
classroom as I am always up helping the kids, matting, helping other
teachers, putting up displays,etc. Elementary Art Teachers DO NOT SIT
DOWN!!!!! Most of the time I grade paper during lunch, take home and
grade or if I am lucky, a break time (plan time).
