Re: awesome portraits /my plan

I plan to try and replicate what Brenda has done here.
My plan is to shoot digital photos of each seventh grader.
To edit them with Photoshop Elements to increase the contrast
and then use the "cut paper" filter to create a model for
students to get the idea from. Perhaps this is using too much
technology as a help but I don't see how they can see the
value changes without it. I'd sure like other ideas to create
a learning situation out of this. Any ideas out there ?

       I'm from Kansas,  where the Legislature and BOE keep trying 
        to define the term "suitable" because our constitution requires
          the state provide a "suitable" education for all students
                      Only Kansas is flat, not the entire planet.
