To Leung Tsz Kwong,
I am having my students keep a daily journal, in which they answer various
open-ended questions. I began the series of questions with "What is Art?",
and "Are there different kinds of art (other than historical styles and
media)?" They then wrote one question each, which we put in a box. I draw
one every day, and all of my students respond to it in their journals,
which, I have promised them, are confidential. I'm getting interesting
answers, and they're getting more self confident about speaking about art as
we go. I sometimes open discussion on the day's question during clean-up,
or to get them to focus during class. It's working.

The journals will be an important part of their final portfolio.
