RE: how do your students use glue?


Date: Sun Sep 19 2004 - 06:30:48 PDT

Hi. Well here's mine. I adapted it from the process suggested by Barbara Traietti (excuse the spelling) from Boston, who taught the most inspiring summer course I've ever attended. (If anyone knows her, I'd love to hear where she is and what she's doing.) Anyway, the glue bottles remain at a 'station', along with little card scraps and toothpicks. Students place about a quarter-size dab of elmers on the card, take it back to their place w/toothpick, and apply in tiny toothpick dots. Works for me.

Barbara's process was sans the toothpicks. Her tiny students use their little finger as an application tool (still applying in dots). The rest of the hand does the positioning, but that little digit is held out (like with a fancy teacup) and stays out of the way except for when needed. Did you get that? If you're laughing, I understand perfectly. J.
