New Gig....

After 29 years working with elementary children, it was time to find out how learner directed art education pedagogy would work with older students within an institutional setting. After my first 3 weeks at New Palestine High School, I would have to say TAB works beautifully! The students are thriving and I am enjoying teaching like never before! More to come soon! Happy teaching...Clyde

Did your high school students have trouble at first, handling the freedom? I am a new art teacher and I teach at a K-12 school.
My younger students are loving the exploration and creating art. My high school students are apprehensive and want me to hand hold. They are also more prone to goofing off and not trying so hard if we aren't all doing the same thing. I'm not sure if it is because there is no direct comparison between their projects.
Any advice would be much appreciated! Glad your transition is going well. :)
