Increasing Choice at the Elementary Level

2 PD Hours

  • 1 Evaluate your current level of student choice in your classroom.

  • 2 Learn how to manage students, stations, and supplies when increasing choice.

  • 3 Explore lesson ideas, such as how to reimagine your current lessons to include more choice and how to offer engaging full choice lessons.

As art teachers, we all offer some level of choice for our students but have you ever felt yourself wanting to offer more? In this PRO Pack, learn how to evaluate where you fall on the choice spectrum and learn how to add more choice to lessons you are already doing with your students. Join Susie Belzer as she guides you on your journey towards increasing choice options for your students. With great ideas such as setting up studio stations to manage your overflowing art supplies, she leads you on the path towards increasing choice.
