Amy or Susan, could you please repost the websit?. Sounds like a great way
to engage the students in more research for their projects. Thanks. Judie

>Hello Susan -- Gee..thanks for the nice site review! I made it with features
>that I find useful for my students and hope that others can find useful
>parts, too. As for the time it takes, I tried to also have an active online
>gallery but just couldn't keep up with it. I started the page several years
>ago, and each summer I check the links, update and replace as necessary, and
>try to add a couple of new features.

>Definitely -- I want to engage the kids outside the classroom as much as
>possible, and also want to bring more of their individual interests to art
>class. We have very limited art time (less than twice a week all year) and I
>find this set of assignments lets the kids dabble with different ideas and
>explore their skills. This is the third year I've used this portfolio
>homework system, and I feel like I know each student much better from seeing
>this "extra" work. It also helps build skills of independent learning and
>organization, which (at least) my middle schoolers need.
>Thanks for the feedback on the site, and I hope parts of it might be useful
