Process for Addressing Struggling Students in My Virtual Art Classroom - Rebecca Kennedy
Is the student struggling?
How can I meet their needs?
Send private message on Zoom
Ask what I can do to help
Do what I can during class and prepare for next time
Take a break if needed
Practice meditation if possible
More simplified drawing?
Contact parents if needed
See if parent can sit and draw with the child
Student may feel more at ease; parent sets an example
Ask parent what I can do to help
Prepare for next class
Ask if student is okay
Has any improvement been made?
