Assemblage

"Assemblage" is the 3-D version of "collage”. "Found object fragments," "discards," or "throwaways" (artist's work to look at: Schwitters, Cornell, Rauschenberg, Bearden, etc.).


These things are organized by their specific elements. The resulting groups are then arranged into compositions of art.


Extending to many cultures of people living in family, religious, work, and various other groups; We could be viewed as a complex living version of "assemblage”(Webster 1. a group of persons or things gathered or collected).


We have “found” each other by chance; either by blood, common goals, or a certain chemistry. These connections help to formulate new ideas, innovations, and even new generations. John Anderson

1st and 3rd Quarter Requirements Checklist


Here is a list of projects to be completed before spring break. With more projects listed, students could choose which to do. If they completed 80%, they likely received a "B" for the quarter. Their grade could go up or down based on quality. 
Their work would usually receive the best score if completed based on criteria given to them for the finish and complexity of their projects. Working habits were also considered; student who make good use of their time usually earned an"A" grade. I never gave grades to students. I showed (project examples and written hand-outs) and told them exactly what to do to earn each grade. These hand outs were also given to parents on parent night. The words you choose are very important. 
I always gave students the benefit of the doubt (teachers make mistakes too), and I always gave each student the highest grade possible. My students received about 50%  A's and B's this time of the year, increasing to the end of the year. 1st quarter grade were lower to inspire improvement. By the end of the year most students receive A's and B's. 
Most thought my grading was fair because there were no secrets about grades. I passed out a papers describing past student actions for each letter grade. It was somewhat amusing because it was so true. It saved lots of head aches and I could win lots of arguments about grade complaints. 
With photo progress documentation on each student, I could attach evidence to email requests from parents. It was extra work, it was impressive and sweet sometimes. Stay on top, give and demand respect, as a teacher, a professional, and most of all, a human being.
