After the Summer Institute, some teachers have returned to the classroom and believed they needed to cover all elements and aspects of the Art Books, & Creativity curriculum. A teacher who was using the curriculum for a second year wrote this:
Last year I was just “trying to get through the lessons” because I thought I had to. My tunnel books came out much better this year because I have slowed down and focused on teaching some of the elements in each lesson more thoroughly rather than covering everything.
As you think about your proposed lesson concept what, specifically, do you want your students to learn through this lesson? While there are many concepts that could be taught through a lesson what is one on which you will concentrate? What challenges do you anticipate?
