Bring on the Theory anytime...I like to get in it and
roll around, personally. Oh, but I hope you don't
delete just 'cause I said that!
I think most writing kind of skirts the issue you
brought up, and rather stresses the importance of
inquiry-based appraoches and finding both
multiple perspectives and meaningful solutions.
This is of interest to me though, because recently I
encountered an "art teacher" (the babysitting kind)
that provided coloring pages to students exclusively.
And I have been meaning to tackle it - so your post
has helped me get under way. Maybe someone else will
even have more of a direct response/solution.
