[teacherartexchange] Calling all color theorists


Date: Tue May 16 2006 - 20:19:03 PDT

Okay, we had some disagreement on terminalogy in our department recently.
Would like a consensus from the list if you could.

How do you define to your students what Black is and what White is.

  I have a teacher who tells kids White is the absence of color (not sure
what she tells them black is though).
I've heard others call these neutrals along with grays and browns.
  And I've heard still others say white is all the colors of the spectrum
combined. This might be very scietific but it could be confusing to kids. I've
also heard that black described as the absence of color.

How do you define black and white to your students if they ask you whether
these are colors or not?
