To start the day, I again ask students to set a goal for the class period: what will they accomplish for their project? They write their goals for all to see on the board, a very public way to hold themselves accountable.
Students have the class period to work on their projects today. I have all materials needed for any of the options, from art supplies to computer time.
As students work, I again meander to address questions and keep students on task. For the most part, students simply want me to check in work.
