Dear Christine,
In answer to your "too much thinking for them"query, let them be their
own problem solvers. That's how they learn what works and what doesn't.
Don't worry about what they don't know yet. That will come with interest
and experience. Find what really turns them on, what do they like. Most
kids have a liking for music--even if it's not what we as adults think
is music. Without using too much material, they could design their own
CD cover, advertising poster for a band or musical instrument. Have them
write the text copy for selling it to someone and teach layout
techniques too. Just a thought off the top of my weary head. I have a
crew that
talks constantly bout skateboarding and ramps and geear etc.
I play on this interest constantly giving tham the opportunity to design
their own board and make a "mini "
of it.
Thay thought this waswaaaaaaaaaaay too cool. Granted not in any
curriculum guide but got their interest piqued. and they stayed with me.

Keep Cool,
The force is with you,
