Yeah Bunki!
You,ve expressed my sentiments exactly. Everything from the "book
people" needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Sometimes the grains
are good and sometimes the grains are........ well you know what I mean.

I'm in middle school also, and right now my 6th graders are doing
landscapes.
During the sketching of the compositions out come the "m" birds, suns in
the corners, and zig-zag mountains. Yikes! When I explain to the
students how the sun moves through the sky during the day , how to do
birds other ways, how mountains are not all the some height and width -
they eat it up! They are happier with the outcome of their work. It
was like a light was turned on for them.
I hope all teachers are not afraid to sosmetimes try to break the
boundaries of stale expectations for all students. Reach a little
higher, be a little bolder.
Good-Luck to
All!
