Each teacher at our school has a small group of advisees for whom we are advocates. Each grade level has certain goals and issues to address with their advisees, one of which is to help 8th graders become more organized. When MH sent me this link yesterday, I thought what a perfect introduction to today’s advisory activity regarding organization. I was pumped.
Ursus Wehrli is a Swiss artist and comedian whose material is flaunting his OCD. Yes, he is an incredible neat freak, taking his obsessiveness to amazing heights. He has lifted the bar on structure and arrangement, cleanliness and order. He has created an aesthetics of anal retention.
Here is what he has done to his alphabet soup.
I should mention that after my sharing of this artist’s work with my advisees today, LG said, “So what does this have to do with me getting all my work in on time?”
Lucky for me, the rest of my advisees took it upon themselves to explain the connection to him…all at the same time.
