Thoughts? I am fried. This was a lot to manage. It's not for the faint of heart.
Did all students succeed? Well- hmmm. Not all of the masks were pretty, or well done. Many students should have spent more time on their painting (but that's usually the case). BUT- my kids are delighted. They love their creations. They were so excited to take them home, and I didn't settle one argument about who did which mask. They simply knew their work- they were attached. And dying to see their masks at every stage. There's a lot to be said for that.
Will I do this level of choice all the time? I'm not sure. Will I increase the opportunities for choice? You bet!
