Mrs. Wilwert
    6th Grade Art     



I am Mrs. Wilwert, one of the three art teachers at John Adams this 2017-2018 school year.  I will be working only with the 6th, 7th and 8th graders this year!  We will be working on a lot of great stuff this year such as drawing, painting, ceramics, and printmaking!  I look forward to seeing your amazing art skills!


Standards Based Grading:
In art I use the standards based grading system.  The students are graded on six of the most important standards that I believe they need in order to move up the next grade level. The students are graded on the three C's of art making; CREATIVITY, CRAFTSMANSHIP, and COMPOSITION.  These are the basis of each project. 


Demonstrates superior understandings.

Demonstrates and applies knowledge and understanding.

Beginning to meet requirements for grade-level work.

Demonstrates minimal understandings

Seldom meets requirements for grade-level work.

Requires an extended amount of time, instruction, assistance and/or practice.

Throughout the semester, the students have chance to redo each standard with every project they do.  So if they do not get the grade they want this time, there will be time to retry during the next project.
