To MRJWITZ regarding children's author/illustrators:

Hello!
I think you are nurturing your students with so much knowledge in your
unit teaching of author/illustrators. Sounds great to me and would love
to hear the details. Would like to know also about the other 4 books
they created, and approximately how long it took to complete these
books. I congratulate you and your students! By the way, what grade
level?

I am currently a student and I am preparing to teach a chapter in one of
my classes Tues(tomorrow!), touching the subject of Interdisciplinary
thematic teaching. I am very nervous, but excited at the same time. My
unit is specifically on Cinco de Mayo. It has been hard work for me, as
this is all new to me as a student. But I am learning as I go, and
having fun getting there! I truly believe that interdisciplinary
thematic teaching is wonderful. I like it especially because it offers
such a big variety where all students can participate, allowing each
student to utilize and demonstrate their strengths and giftedness.

I have all my paperwork ready with examples and activities but I am very
interested in learning more about your presentation, it will help me to
understand it better, please e-mail copy. It must be like music to your
ears to hear and see your students identify artists, authors,
illustrators, etc., and their work. I myself get more and more excited
in finding out about new things in the art education that I still have
not studied yet!

I'm new to this, so I can't wait to see yours! Wish me luck!
Thanks,
Rachel
