A great question. On 8/15/04, I posted a message on Art and Science
Integration. It was about answering questions with questions that help the student
use the scientific method. In this method the teacher thanks the student for
the idea and encourages safe and reasonable experimentation. The coin in clay
is one of those teaching moments. I love it when a student wants to do
something new. It does not always feel natural, but I try to remind myself to give a
positive response. I want the student to proceed safely as independently as
possible while keeping me informed of her actions.
Dear Marvin,
Just for the record, I want you to know that I appreciate your participation
in Artednet! You have given so much to me, not only in terms of ceramic
knowledge, but also in your teaching attitudes! Frankly, I find it harder and
harder to keep up on all the threads, and often I must delete posts from the list
before opening them. However, whenever I see a post from YOU, I read it-
that's how valuable your expertise is to me. You're one of our Artsednet family
that I would like to meet someday. Thanks for everything!
