Have you played Kahoot? The game fell on a Monday, which was perfect for a review of materials and a scheduled observation. Talk about a fun lesson to do with teenagers! I know charcoal is a messy medium, but I love it. Some of my students don’t enjoy the challenge, but their end results sure look great. I went step by step with them and filled out digital notes as we watched a slew of “how-to” videos. Having a flipped room for reviewing information is rewarding because they are literally telling you about the supplies vs. you standing in front of them lecturing. Not to mention a really successful abstract charcoal drawing as the end result. This lesson is really worth it!
