Since transitioning my classroom into a TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) or choice based model, I have seen a variety of media being selected to illustrate the concept of Identity. Check out the progress below:

Thank you so much for the comment. I would be happy to talk with you more on the subject. Is there a specific question you have that I could answer?

I'm wondering how you work with due dates on projects? How long are your units? I'm doing choice-based for the first time and learning as I go. My students came up with a list of themes, then I had the classes vote on which theme we would do, then they work in the center they choose to create something that meets the theme. The problem that I'm having is that I have students all working on different things and finishing at different times. I have a few that are really lagging behind(not many), not due to the project, but that they seem to not have the motivation since there isn't a due date. I've decided to meet with each student when they submit their project proposal and discuss a tentative due date based on what type of project they are doing. My school district requires that I have at least 2 grades a week posted and a minimum of 6 assessment grades (projects) for the 9 weeks. Any advice you can give me would be great!

I am coming up with the themes for the units and leaving about three weeks per unit for students to plan and implement ideas. They are expected to complete at least two works in that time. I am also grading their sketchbook and Artist of the Week entries as they are working. Artist of the Week is a weekly discussion post where students select an artist and explain how looking at this work will help them with improving their own skills and understanding of how art is made and why. This allows a consistent grade throughout the term. Let me know if you would like more information.
