> Date: Thursday, September 17, 1998 9:20 PM
> Looking for some creative brainstorming on an "interdisciplinary"
> A reading teacher would like me to do book illustrations with her class
> of 19 eighth grade students, and they are each reading different books.
> They write a book review for their book and then illustrate a scene or
> theme from their books. The purpose for this art work is to attract
> attention to their writing pieces displayed on open-house night. I
> have five class periods for this.
> I attempted this last year (my first year in this school) and it was not
> much of a learning experience for anyone--like trying to teach 19
> different lessons at once... .
> I have some thoughts about limiting imagery to a character, structure,
> or object, and creating a la Matisse... But was hoping that the
> collective wisdom of this group might have suggestions, or point me in
> another direction for a solution.
> In advance: Many thanks!!
