I love collaborating with teachers to create cross -curricular instruction. Even more than double chocolate cake, I love when we work together to create units that builds children’s understanding of how the arts connect to all areas of life.  All 570 students visit me for 40 minutes a week. My room is called “The Artist’s Café” where love and imagination is served daily and examples of nature’s gifts abound. I made a Café menu for each grade level using the California Visual Art Standards and the new National Art Standards. This makes a great resource for parents who want to be involved with our classroom learning as well as a place to show case our lessons.    The feeling of being in a Parisian Café, discussing art and writing our thoughts while soft music plays, has definitely brought out our inner- bohemians and  has been so much fun!  They look on the menu board for their daily objectives!  Oo La La`

A few of my favorite Lessons

Assessments

 

Metacognition is embedded into every lesson, Students are asked to be mindful of what choices they make and attend to the results they get. They are  asked to evaluate their work and express their opinions about their art and others. We use rubrics which set a way to make evaluation clearly understood. There is no more "Teacher is this good?" We refer to the rubric.It gives students a way to judge their work and others.
