YIKES! CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT (2)
The actual teaching and learning is the pivotal process to successful classroom management. It’s important to plan strong lessons, and plan for the unexpected in those art lessons. Connect the lessons with your students’ interests and social issues that influence their lives. Recognizing the importance of culture and nuances that are changing our society and world are important aspects of your lessons.
Use technology in meaningful ways that enhance the student learning and accent the creative avenues that the arts make available to the learner. Letting technology and the art of creating blend in such a way that it gives students another opportunity to express themselves. Technology is not going away, figure out how to embrace it creatively!
Classroom management is a personal venture for every art educator. You will often make mistakes in order to move forward. You will often think you have the solution and then suddenly realize that it doesn’t work anymore. You will have perfect days in your classroom, and you will have days that are a disaster. Everyday you will become a better art teacher!!!
