Due dates are a part of most classes. Projects are assigned and must be turned in at a certain time. Some teachers are very strict about this and others are more flexible. This semester in Art One I've gotten rid of most due dates for projects. Instead I'm assigning all projects up front and letting you work through them at your own pace and in the order you choose. What do you think about this style of teaching? Does it work for you or not? How does it effect your artwork?
I'm an high school art teacher who's really interested in student choice and creating opportunities for self expression. I'm also a writer for The Art of Education and co-author of The Open Art Room.
