Today you received several postings from university students who are eager
to learn from each other and more experienced teachers out in the
classroom. These preservice teachers are appreciative of the opportunity to
correspond, talk, and ask questions. I would like to refer readers to my
October 6, 1998 posting about this project. I hope you will welcome their
inquiry and participation.

I would like to invite you all to join an Interinstitutional Dialogue
among art education faculty and preservice art education sudents at: The

We hope you will welcome the new list members and join the
interinstitutional dialogue. Thank you.
