  1. Thanks, Ben.
    I’d love to hear more about how people use “class artists”. Seems like a great way to let kids draw while keeping them focussed on the class. This is something I started doing last week and it was great. I had a couple of students draw the one-word image we created. What about with pqa/stories… ideas?

  2. I think class artist sounds like an interesting idea – what about on whiteboards or something, take a little one and divide it into panels with masking or electrical tape, and they have to draw each event as we pull it together? There’s a “differentiation piece” for the kid who hates to participate orally but loves to doodle. Whiteboard because then they can’t get too carried away with shading and stuff, but then we could take a picture of it at the end of class to print out or show later. If you have the iPhone, I use Whiteboard Capture Lite (maybe no longer available?) or Whiteboard Share to get all the information off the whiteboard before erasing.

  3. From a doodler:
    I love the artist idea because it adds accountability. The class needs/wants to see the story afterwards. I doodled when I was bored. Still do…you should see me in those meetings we have about uhh…can´t remember what because I was doodling!

  4. In my 7th grade classes I have many so many students that want to be the artist that they spontaneously draw the story as we tell it. During class and at the end of class 3 or 4 students hand me papers with their illustrations. They are so enthusiastic about the illustrations that we are going to compile the stories and their illustrations into a book and donate to the local preschool. For one of my 7th graders in particular who joined the class after the school year began, it has been the only way for her to engage in the class thus far.
