Ah....... teacher workday at last. Finally, I'm checking e-mail that's so
old that I almost have to blow the dust off of it before I read it.

Anyway, we've talked about artist biographies, living artists interviews,
and similiar subjects. My middle school students will start researching
artists when we get back on Monday. I've collected some great web-sites
that they can get information on and posted it on my "on-line classroom" for
easier access than marking every bookmark in the lab. This page is at:

This unit will be like a "pilot" test for my thesis research that I'll do in
the spring when my kids research artists on the internet. I want to prove
that interactive technology motivates and provides for more student-centered
instruction than traditional methods of research and slide presentations.
Check out the site because there's some great resources listed. I'd love to
hear any other resources- like art search engines, artist index, examples of
students' reports, testimonials, etc.- and I'll post them on the page.
