I asked the High School teacher if I could see how my experiments with
building students ability to look at and discuss art in my elementary
classroom would carry over to the HS level. He agreed to let me come in
and try it out. I used materials relevant to what he was teaching....

By modeling the behavior for him, I think he got the idea that he could
do it, and has utilized more and more "DBAE skills" as time has passed
