Picture 1: The first picture shows my set-up for "I can..." statements. My smartboard is not situated in a spot that is easy to see when students are all sitting in their seats, so I created my own white boards by laminating construction paper. I attached velcro to the chalkboard under a large "I can..." sign. I have one laminated piece per grade level and I put 1 or 2 statements on the sheet for each project. It's easy to pull it down and change it before the next class arrives. This photo also shows my Mona Lisa rubric on top of the chalkboard. (See related resource.) These are various photos of photoshoped Mona Lisas that I found on the internet to show understanding. When asked, students show me on their fingers if they understand or get what they are being asked to do/taught.
Photo 2: The second picture shows you my craftsmanship rubric. This is something I refer to all the time and it gives students a constant reference in the classroom to compare their artworks to before handing them in. The smileys on the rubric also correlate to the smileys I use on the grading rubrics for projects.
Photo 3: The last photo is a picture of my Artist of the Week set-up. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of that bulletin board (and I have already taken it down for the school year). I used the tie-dyed duct tape to attach black bulletin board paper to the wall outside my room. The palette and paint cans were all taped to the makeshift bulletin board and once every two weeks, I would pick a different student from each class to be artist of the week. This falls in line with Marzano by giving awards and acknowledging students who do a good job.
