Respond to this message.

I would like to thank all the folks who have taken a look at "Our Place in
the World:" An Inquiry-based, Thematic Curriculum Resource accessible
through ArtsEdNet, the Getty Education Institute's website
( I was overwhelmed by the insightful
remarks and suggestions for ways to use the resource that I read on
ArtsEdNet Talk last week.

If you check out the resource this week you'll find a couple of changes.
First, the folks at the Getty Institute have posted a new, simpler opening
page, which I think you will find easier to use. Second, in the Seminar
Syllabus, accessible from the "Our Place in the World" opening page, they
have also posted reflective activities focused on the issue of
"instructional themes." This week and next we'll be considering the
following question: "What characteristics do educationally powerful
instructional themes have and is 'Our Place in the World' an educationally
powerful theme?" Join the discussion by checking out Seminar activities
and making your own contribution on ArtsEdNet Talk, the listserv. So that
we can all easily find your contribution to the seminar, please type
"Curriculum Issues" on the subject line of your email message. I look
forward to another week of stimulating idea exchange.
