I believe students should have options of projects they can go back to when their primary project is overwhelming, they get stuck, or just need a break.

Encouraging reluctant writers. The animal illustrated here is from the Burgess Shale.
The final project of art class was a “postmodern parody painting.” I asked students to recreate a famous piece but change something to make it relevant to them or mix in some pop culture. This was a project students could do in small groups if their canvas was large.
