Teaching Form in Ceramics

Any ideas on the best way to motivate high school Ceramics students to
understand what constitutes a pleasing form? I'm trying to get them to look
at more pieces from history, as well as lots of examples in Clay Times. I
am also requiring more sketches of ideas and plans before working in clay.
I would like to put together a list of guidelines for good form. If you
were creating this list, what "rules" or guidelines would you include? Are
there any books out there that address this topic? I also want to cover the
other elements and principles during the semester. Thanks to all you clay
people...
