Final Reflections

What worked?

Relationship building, learning how to work together, I scheduled more time with these classes.
-Kitty Conde, visual arts teacher

Integration of classroom research and writing into a public presentation of student visual art.
- John Neff, Teaching Artist

What did not work?

The inability to take work home. I would like to balance the hours with John between me, the teacher.
-Kitty Conde, visual arts teacher

Limited contact with the students in the classroom; we should have scheduled this more carefully.
-John Neff, teaching artist

What questions do you still have?

What kind of work are we doing around assessment in the data way?
Are we looking to increase scores?
Is this tied to Common Core?
-Kitty Conde, visual arts teacher

Could the classroom writing and research be more integrated into art room activities?
- John Neff, Teaching Artist

How will the project develop year to year?
-John Neff, teaching artist

What new ideas do you have?

Catalog of exhibit
Social issues project to carry the inquiry into 7th grade
-Kitty Conde, visual arts teacher

More complete scheduling of the project from the outset, with a focus on process and integration rather than "finished work."
-John Neff, Teaching Artist
