Lesson Plans

Secondary Budget?

In my secondary art methodology class, I am having students use secondary art
curriculum documents to create a course, determine what must be taught in
that course during a half semester time period and create units and daily
lesson plans.
They have to justify their selection of concepts to be taught in the course
and present evidence of sequential development of student' knowledge and
skills. I want them to have the real constraints of an art budget. I would
appreciate an indication of what your secondary budgets are for the year and
how you divide it up between courses. They are creating the following
courses: sculpture, ceramics, jr. high general art course, drawing,
painting, jewelry, and printmaking.
Also, I would like to ask if their is anyone out there that would
consider an e-mail mentorship with some of my students. I want them to have
a vision of secondary art that is not just my own. My discipline's revolve
around drawing and painting, and I do not want this to limit what student's
learn in this class. And I am also finding them so reticent to embrace the
internet. I have explained that so many of us work in isolation and contact
with other art teachers through this medium helps to unify this discipline.
They have been told to sign up for the list serve, but a personal touch of
receiving mail from a teacher that shares their art interest could help them
to get used to communication and cyberspace. Thankyou, Su Douglas, Northern
Arizona University.
