I was in Waukegan and Zion last year where the kids loved the awards. The
ethnic groups in Waukegan love art and could succeed, whereas their test
scores were not as successful because of their English. In Cicero, the ethnic
groups love art, also.
I am looking forward to doing the awards with them. I write on the back "For
excellence in ....." and list the project(s) because they like to know that.
I'd like to save the project and present it in front of the assembly, so it
can be a visual award.
I will pull aside the projects and circle the A+'s in my book. Maybe, I'll
photo the child as he/she receives the award, also, and make double prints.
