Great idea. I think the important thing is to come up with
a system that works for you rather than a system that makes
you work. Phil Dunn's advice to art teachers, years ago, was
to find ways to work smarter rather than harder. When my
students would tell visitors that they did all the work,
not Mr. Duncan, I thought I must be on the right track.
