This lesson is a student favorite. It teaches students a powerful lesson. "Every mistake you make is progress."
Peter Reynolds encourages students to "make a mark" and follow where it takes us.
Art class is over, but Vashti is sitting in front of a blank piece of paper. Vashti can't draw; she's no artist. To prove her point, Vashti jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable angry dot. "There!" she says. But, that one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti's journey of self-discovery.
The lesson includes:
A Growth Mindset anchor chart
"Transforming A Dot" art activity
Directions for the art activity
Bulletin board lettering
