        Each student has a different size plate and we have very little in the way
of methods to line the plate for registration. They put an "arrow" on
the back
of the plate (pointing up) and an "X" (at the top) on each print. Then they
simply, carefully "eyeball" it. One pic shows a girl placing the plate
by hand. I know about "keys" and registration marks but for middle school
this seems to work best.
