How do I gauge if a lesson is too easy or too complicated for an age group?
I get asked that a lot. And Heaven’s knows, I’ve tried to answer that question myself on more than one occasion. But here’s the thing: judging whether a lesson will work with your little charges gets easier and easier. Still, I resort to a framework that I established by about my fifth year of teaching.
These are my very general guidelines as to what kids in a K-6 art room are comfortable learning while at the same time challenged enough to promote artistic growth. And that’s what this episode is about. How to determine whether or not your class will be up to the challenge of a particular art project.
This episode is perfect for everyone who wonders whether that art project you’re eyeing on Pinterest will suit your class.
