Ah, back to school. It's right around the corner and I'm getting excited about new courses and new ideas. You might be too. If you're an elementary teacher who's interested in TAB (what is TAB?) I've written some lesson plans for the Art of Education that might be helpful. Of course, TAB is a read-the book-kind of venture, so If you haven't had the chance, I highly recommend picking up a copy of Engaging Learners Through Artmaking. Joining groups of like-minded educators is also helpful. TAB has a great website, with lots of resources. Also, if you are on Facebook, make sure to join Mid West TAB-Choice Art Teachers.

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.
