RE: Participation in Research Focusing on the Use of the Imperial Tombs of
China Web Site

Dear Educator,

I am sending this message in hopes some of you who may
be interested in having your students take a virtual field trip to the
Orlando Museum of Art during their exhibition of artifacts from Imperial
Tombs of China. A curriculum guide is currently on the Net and tutorials
are now accessible. Images of artifacts featured in the exhibition
along with information that will help your students learn about these
treasures is at your fingertips. A discussion group focusing on a specific
work of art each week is also in the works. The URL for the site is (please check it out)

As a doctoral student at Florida State University I am researching the
development and use of this web site. I am working in a partnership with
the Orlando Museum of Art. If you have access to the Internet and the
content of the exhibition fulfills curriculum requirements for the
subject(s) you teach you could have access to ready-made instructional
materials while making a unique contribution to this research. Please feel
free to forward this message to anyone you think may be interested.

Specifically I am looking for educators who will be using the web
site (in
any way they choose) to participate as a member of the sample population for
this research. I will need the cooperation of the teachers to participate
in interviews and reply to questionnaires. If at all possible, I would also
like to observe students during any or all lessons in which the web site is
being accessed, have students complete questionnaires, and participate in a
focus group discussion. Students need not be scheduled to attend the
exhibition although this would be a bonus. See the web site for details on
how to obtain tickets.

If you have any questions or would like to participate as a member
of the
sample population please contact me at swest or from the web
site via a survey or by phone (407) 275-1239.

Thank you for your interest.
