It always amazes me how well this works, but I always start out the term
telling the kids that art is so much fun and they're going to love it I
promise. All the rest of the day they have been hearing threats and
signing behavior contracts and I promise them a good time. I get nasty
and have fits etc. like everyone else, but they seem to remember my
initial promise. When they're really bogging down I tell them to just
hang in there and do the best they can and pretty soon we'll me going on
to something else and they're really going to like it. One of the worst
mistakes I've ever made was telling a class (who were really horrible to
the max) that they were my worst class--that really gave them somethiing
to live up to. I barely lived through that group! Sid
