Re:Student taught lessons-collaborating elem. & high school
- I've wanted to do this for years! I have a good friend who teaches 3rd grade, and I teach high school art. In ninth grade, we are finished up a cartooning/comic strip project. Since a few students finished before the rest of the class, I wanted to extend their cartooning skills. I came up with a choice of 2 projects for them to work on. One is to produce a rebus-type story (similar to those in Highlights magazine) using topics from social studies and science that my friend (3rd grade teacher) supplied. They made small drawings to insert into a story typed out on the computer. A few students started these yesterday--they are a big hit. They like the idea that the third grade will actually use them in class. The other choice (which no one selected) was to create a board game related to the same science and social studies concepts. I had simple board game examples and rebus-story examples to inspire them.Not exactly the kind of collaboration you describe--but it's a start!Dodi
