Hi all! I would like to begin by thanking everyone on this list for being
themselves. You are what makes this list what it is, and thank goodness you
are not all the same. What a boring list it would be! Therefor I feel we
should not try to tell people what they can write (or draw) about and what
not. As a foreigner I actually find it strange that someone in America
should want to tell people what to write about. Of course no one should
personally insult anyone, that seems to go without saying. But differences
of opinions are a spice to this list. And I do like this list. YOU ALL NEED
TO BE HERE.
As an artist and art teacher I have gotten all kinds of valuable
information from this list. If I have asked for help there have always been
many wonderful responses(different ones), and I thank you all. I have also
learned some new things, gotten in touch with some very interesting people
and done cooperative things. All this is great. By the way if Sandra L.
Eckert is still on the list, I have not forgotten the Whale Song project
and it will be on my agenda first thing in the fall. I am actually going
whale watching this summer. So you´ll here from me Sandra. I also want to
thank Dr. Mary Ericson for the seminar "Our place in the world" and all
that participated, I really did learn so much from that. This and so much
more is why I am on this list and want to continue to do so. Yes let´s
celebrate!
I am also curious how many people on the list use DBAE as their main
aproach in their teaching? I do and I think that my teaching has improved
greatly by it and my students are learning more and being more creative all
the time. But this is long enough now so I won´t tell any experience
stories, maybe another time.
Best regards from the far north, Rosa
