Students get ill. When children are sick they miss school.  How do you teach a student art when they are ill for an extended period of time?    Below are three easy ways to provide art lessons for home bound students?

  • Sketchbook/Journal; Print out prompts for students to glue into sketchbook.  Using any medium available having the student sketch and/or write responses for each prompt. The sketchbook can be turned in and assessed when the student returns to school.
  • Blog; Post prompts on a blog site.  Using a hand-held device the students will complete prompts weekly while they are absent.  Respond to the student and his responses in a timely manner.
  • On-Line Learning;  Make available any power points, Prezis, or You Tube videos that you are using with your lessons on the school district web site and/or blog.  Ask the student to complete the prompts in a word document which can be emailed to your school address.

Look at the approximate time frame that the student will be away from the classroom.  Using your curriculum map for reference develop 5 prompts for each week that the student will be absent.  Use those prompts in one of the above formats.  Schedule a specific day for completion of each prompt. By utilizing technology students can photograph work and submit for grading.

The objective is to make learning accessible for a homebound student and easy for you to assess.
