RE: American Folk Art - Reduction Print Quilt Lesson

Judy and Kelli and all,
I remember reading recently that the Underground Railroad quilt connection was a scam.
Did we discuss that on this listserv? If not, perhaps I'll seek that info out.

        Dear ArtsEdNetters,
        Kelli Wilkie sent me her American Folk Art Reduction
        Print - Quilt Design Lesson:
        She also included scanned in handouts - that re-did
        for the site as the file was too big.
        You can get an idea what I might have done with it....
        Other ways might be to have a word bank - with a line
        under each image - fill in the blank kind of work
        sheet. I chose to match letter to number. Kelli had
        numbered quilt patterns and numbers for names too. You
        can set it up any way you wish..... Generally with
        matching, one column is letters and one column is
        numbers. I tried to think of a way that would be least
        confusing for special ed kids (but my assessment
        knowledge is getting fuzzy)
        Enjoy this lesson. Send in your successful units and I
        will share with all. This one is linked from Middle
        School Lesson Plans.
