Do any members have experience with TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) or Choice-Based art education? I am a 2nd year, 6-8 art teacher in a rural district, and I'm hoping to improve the level of engagement and independence in my classes with choice-based art. I've been very dissatisfied with what seems to be huge lack of creativity and problem-solving in my students. My assigned projects this year have almost all been flops, and I want to try something more open-ended. Any advice?
