My students love to know their work is going to be exhibited around town.
They’ll ask me about it in the morning before they even start to work.
Also, appearing on the website also seems to be a perk for them, too….. they want to be the teacher and explain “how to” do the things they’ve figured out……..
What was funny for me over Spring Break is how they asked me to be an “American Idol” judge.
They wanted sort of a competition dynamic —– each person motivated to do their best work and looking for real constructive feedback.
They wanted to improve their work…….
I’d send them back with ” that cat leg looks a bit stiff” and “the corners could be better considered”
