Dear Stephanie,
Since you're on ArtEdNet I'm sure you know that art is not just production.
My beginner's, mostly 9th graders, are required to keep a notebook in which
they have the 25 vocabulary terms we learn for each of the 9 units of Drawing
& Painting 1, plus their thumbnail sketches of the slides we see for each
unit, the questions on the historical period in art we are studying in the
textbook, and their tests. We also do written critiques, and often begin
units with a listing of things the student already knows about what we will
be studying, or what they would like to know. When we see videos they have
to write down a certain number of facts about it, according to the length of
the video. They also receive typed handouts of instructions with each
