Artsednet is an e-mail discussion between art teachers from any place in the world. Subscribe to Artsednet for at least one week.  Select at least one topic being discussed and make one or more journal entries in response to one or more topics other sessions are in the planning stages. Have this work in your sketchbook journals by mid-term.

Go the the Getty web site for subscription instructions and information.

Write your journal entry using a word processor and bind the printed page(s) in your sketchbook/journal. 

Journal entries should include cut and pasted messages or portions of messages directly from Artsednet.  Include the originator's name, e-mail address, and date with each cut/paste clipping included. If you select only a portion of somebody's message use dots to indicate this. 

i.e.  ". . . . the children draw what they are seeing . . . ."
This lets the reader know you have omitted part of a sentence.

The part of the journal entry that you write should be mostly analytical, reflective, and creative rather than descriptive. Try to deal with questions of your own making in your writing. Make creative and reflective connections between the e-mail messages, your future as a teacher, and things that relate to our class.

A good way to creatively respond is to write other options and alternative problem solutions to the scenario that you find described in the message.
