I need a grading system which does not generate so much work for me-- grading 150 students work times 4-5 projects--at different skill levels-- what is excellent for one, is mediocre for another. I would like to find a system which doesn't turn into too much work for me. What do you do?

High school art: I will be absent for one week in September. What are your suggestions for the substitute who most likely has no experience teaching art. This is a beginning art class, so many of the students also lack intrinsic motivation.

Chairs give supposed back support. What do you recommend? (As I write this, I realize I can ask my students)

How do you label your supplies so they don't walk away from your classroom (via students or other art teachers)? I'm a neat freak, so I don't really like the huge masking tape flags on the end of my stuff... but sharpie obviously doesn't work for everything. Advice appreciated!

The problem: students placed in HS Art 1 for their "art elective", lacking intrinsic motivation, little self discipline and the curiousity gene was killed off several years back. HOW to inspire, motivate? What to do with the "checked out" so, they might...dare I say...change their attitude and behaviors. Ideas? Please!

Hello! I teach middle school art 6-8 and I have bags of oil pastel bits and pieces. I hate to throw them out, but they are too small to use. Does anyone have a great idea out there? I don't want to melt them down into crayons.
