Carla's message about coins is interesting to me as someone living in
Europe this year and following the introduction of the Euro. Each country
will use the same currency but the coins being minted will have one side in
common and one side that is specific to the member countries---a ruler
usually, at least in those countries that have one. I think this is a nice
way of letting each nation have its own identity while also sharing in a
community. I like the idea of quarters that represent each state----but
will the people in those states get to decide what image is used? It might
be interesting to ask your students what they would put on such a coin to
commemorate their state, county, city, etc.
Best, marcia
