I just got back from my annual trek with 5 students to Europe (in this
case London, Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin). To make a long gushing story
short, I loved every minute of it, and so did they....but I digress. I
had the benefit of reading over 335 emails, the bulk of which were
posted to artsednet. I think I have a unique perspective on a few
things, so I thought I would comment.

We have been invaded by a few "attention" starved individuals on our art
teachers' site. How do you deal with those kinds of "acting out" kids
in your classroom? My students know that I do not give an ounce of
energy to anyone who is not "keeping up with the program"..i.e. "kids
who act out" (or whatever educational euphamism is used in your
district). I only give my energy in a positive manner to kids that give
their all. And so I recommend we do the same with these "interlopers".
Ignore, delete, MOVE ON. 'nuff said.

And to that end, I vote for no moderator. I like the random, pin ball
machine, type of idea sparks another idea thread we have had over the
years.
