Respect and Responsibility

The activity has them leaving the classroom and requires the students to work independently from the teacher. In order to make this a positive experience it is important to lay down clear expectations. In the first few days of school we cover respect and responsibility as being expectations. I remind my class that the expectations I have for them is that they can have fun while learning. Respect is following directions, being polite, and in this case being mindful of others in the building who are working. For example, they will visit a part of the school where others might be, they need to not distract and be good observers. I ask them how they can demonstrate responsibility and I add to their ideas on how it pertains to this lesson. After each expectation is given I always give the opposite example of what is NOT expected. It helps make the message more clear and gives them a model of what not to do.

Students Struggle With This Task

Students are having a very difficult time engaging in academic analysis. Many are flat out shying away from it and leaving their assignment half done. This is a very difficult task for them and I will need to give them more opportunities and support. This student's work on the image, for instance, fulfilled all the requirements. He identified the elements that stand out and identified the elements of art that make certain elements stand out. His analytical writing, at the bottom of the page, still sounds like brainstorming. Part of the work this particular student still needs to do is edit his work, but he also needs me to help him develop his ideas.
