Carry On

"What team would you like to play for?"

It was a middle school graphic arts class. As I came up behind the two boys, I saw all sorts of soccer images (via Google Images) on his screen.

I gently reminded them that they should be on task...

"But this is. I'm going to put his picture on a player card."

The assignment was "student choice Photoshop". My only caveat was that the project needed to be school appropriate.

So... yeah... That was actually all on task.

Right. "Carry on," I told them.

    1. It was. Try telling them that, though. (Oh, they whined...)

  2. Wow, soccer. I don't think I could even name a team to be on.

  3. Well you got to focus the mind on the ball, it is an art. Control, direction and scoring.

  4. Nice to hear they were on task! Sounded like a great project! Not sure what class it was for, but step granddaughter had to put together a presentation on a singer. She chose Frank Sinatra which surprised me but her great grandfather loves Fran Sinatra and she loves her Poppy so it made sense :) I'll have to ask her when I see her next how it went.


  5. That's a fun assignment. Does middle school still have art class or an art period?

  6. One of my Barbarians has had projects like that this term. Have to trust it really is homework!

  7. Hi Liz - well done ... they'd have been pleased to carry on without being too chastised! Cheers Hilary

  8. I wish I could go back and learn stuff like that!

  9. can always work things like that into the task!! haha
