Longer classes, how to organize the time?

  • 1.  Longer classes, how to organize the time?

    Posted 09-20-2018 16:15
    I have just made the leap from elementary level last year after 17 years to middle school. Having 60 minute periods as opposed to 40 minutes this year, how do fellow middle school art educators structure their time in class? Do you have daily sketchbook required time, do they have ongoing process projects for students who complete assigned work? I struggle with wanting my middle schoolers to have freedom in a studio environment but having them sometimes be less productive with less structure.

    Hi Lisa,
    I use coloring pages for little early finishers and mandala for biger. It really works out :-)
