I propose we start every class every day with a ritual. We do a few
minutes of quiet concentrated blind
contour drawing from observation of a real thing, person, setup, or
scene. Secondly, I suggest we end every
period, after cleaning up, with another ritual. We have a discussion
centered on the meanings and implications
of what we did today. Between the beginning and ending rituals, during
the main part of the period, we teach
our projects as we always do.

This is fantastic but (I have a total of 40 minutes) barley enough time
as it is. I'm looking forward to the time when we go to a block
schedule, so I can have real time to present and to do closures too.
