How DO you teach color theory to someone who is color blind? When I was
student teaching, I did a color theory lesson, and my professor happened to
be observing that day. He asked me that question, and actually took off
points from my grade because I didn't have an answer/backup plan for color
blind kids. (he was a COMPLETE jerk...but that's another story) I've never
seen anything anywhere that addresses this. How'd you do it?
