Re: motivation / urban schools

Do any of them have $100 tennis shoes? They were probably designed by someone with an art background? Look at shoe ads and have them create their own new shoe. (maybe send some in to NIKE and see if they get a letter back). Do they play on any rec league teams?- design a new jersey? I did a compare/contrast of a Model T and a Hummer then synthesized ideas to come up with a "car of the future". Find thier interests, see where art might sneak itself in. Peter

  I have worked for 19 years in poverty social schools. This is the first year I can not catch them, hook them, motivate them. I have read the Ruby Payne book. How do you explain how the principles and elements relate to their lives directly. It is kind of like.'' How is Algebra going to help me in the future"
