Instructional Spotlight:
Mrs. Baker

Mrs. Baker is beginning her 7th year here at Liberty Middle.  She teaches visual arts, advanced art, and 3-D art.  She is exploring ways to teach effective critique methods to her students.  She recently had students comment via post-it, with a focus on an element of the rubric provided.  She then had the students gallery walk.  Connect in room 123 with Mrs. Baker to learn how this strategy can work for you!
