I saw a presentation by Beth Olshansky on this topic at the NAEA
convention in either Houston or Baltimore and it was amazing. Heinemann
has a video of this process, but it's $150 and they won't let you
preview without paying a $50 rental fee, so I guess I'm getting cold
feet. Is it worth that much? I could buy several videos (there's one
on Eric Carle by Philomel for around $35, Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan
have one for $25) and numerous books for that $150. But again, if I
don't do this now, I will never have another chance as it was budgeted
in my book grant. The terms of my grant allow me to change specifics
within categories, but not move money to different categories. For
example, I attended four $20 workshops at the NAEA convention instead of
one $85 workshop here in Wichita--a much better use of the money.
