P L E A S E !!!!! Think before you post!

Hmmmmm...... I see that something interesting is appearing here. It was
pointed out in a workshop several summers ago in Boulder, that High
School and Elementary teachers are in totally different universes :)

I for one appreciate the dialogues, some are relevant, some are not...
such is life on a list serve..... when I was telling the Mid School
music teacher about all the posts on pencil sharpeners, she about died

PS.... when I ask my students what happens if they look at the sun, they
answer they will go blind... so, I ask them why we are looking at the
sun in their pictures, then we get into the discussions about cliche's
and child symbols vs looking carefully at the world around us.
