Southwest High School - Teacher Cecily Spano - 3 hours
Just four weeks in and it felt nice to get the teaching part of practicum done! I was able to do a comics collaboration experiment with Cecily's advanced art class. They seemed really engaged with the activity and quickly fell into an excited rhythm of passing their panels, laughing, and doing quick little drawings. I met with Lynda after completing the lesson and she shared her perspective on what I'd done and challenged me to think of different ways to ask questions of the group- What happened? What do you enjoy? What was difficult? So I could create better conversations.
Still have plenty of time to observe for Cecily so I hope I can do little mini-projects, especially with the art club after school. A couple of students have shown me their work and want my help, so I want to be available for them.
