"Hasties" in Elementary


Date: Wed Sep 11 2002 - 09:23:04 PDT

What kinds of strategies do you use for students who rush through
their projects in elementary, particularly 2-5? There are a few in
every class... I'm guessing some are the quick finishers that in their
classrooms speed through the test and throw their pencils down and
their hands up, "done!" -- and I suppose some are the lazy ones, who
will not give a jot more than they absolutely have to ... neither one
makes for careful, thoughtful work in art class. I will try the general
rubric that was posted... (thanks again!), but in the meantime, what
to do with those that despite all will insist on finishing 1 or 2 class
sessions ahead of everyone else?
