Clip to ScrapBook #2

I've used some short, free videos from Mark Kistler to help with the drawing piece.

When it comes to cutting, gluing, drawing, I slow them down and ask students to put supplies down when they have finished step 1 or 2. Then I finish directions, Later, I ask the early finishers if they would like to be help other students who need to finish. Somehow this encourages the ones who are struggling and motivates the ones who really weren't trying to try a little harder.

Then I talk about how real artists need quiet in order to think about their art and I ask for no talking and sometimes play quiet background music, especially classical music or spa music. It works most of the time, but I'll admit that it falls short on those full moon days.
