    Inuit poem

    The Great Sea has set me in motion
    Set me adrift
    And I move as a weed in the river.
    The arch of sky
    And mightiness of storms
    Encompasses me,
    And I am left
    Trembling with joy.*
  39. North: Landscape of the Imagination
    Art from more than two thousand years of Canada's northern history.

Finally, "...the modern era, during which enormous changes have taken place. Inuit art takes its place in galleries throughout the world, the literature of the Dene, the Inuit and the indigenous peoples of the Yukon begin to see print, and North American and European visual artists and writers head north, physically or metaphorically."

    Student project at Stanford on "To Kill a Mockingbird." What is most interesting about the page is the simple HTML that lies below the surface. A simple grid forms the framework and 25 questions are placed in the spaces with point values assigned. Clicking in the spaces leads to a display of the question on the book and clicking on that leads to the answer page. Do a "view source" to see the text and download the page for offline analysis. If you have a text or HTML editor (an excellent one for simple pages is linked in the main K-12 menu) you can experiment with inserting your own titles and text questions in the grid. Give thanks to Dan McBride, who authored the code for the drill.

    WINTER

    It is so dark, how can I know it was ever even day at all?
    It is night. No question.
    If I spent the day better, would I remember it better?
    Indeed, does any of the day remember me?
    I have not spent it well and I am anxious for another day, another chance.
    To pass more slowly. To be more welcoming. To phrase the unusual.
    To find more wonder. To take the time.
    It is night.
    But, tell me, is that some kind of light ahead?

    By Bruse Clanton, SDS (Bruce Clanton is a Salvatorian priest last seen pondering the seasons, including Winter, in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.)

    "A free site on the World Wide Web since 1996..., the Blake Archive was conceived as an international public resource that would provide unified access to major works of visual and literary art that are highly disparate, widely dispersed, and more and more often severely restricted as a result of their value, rarity, and extreme fragility. A growing number of contributors, currently eight American and British institutions and a major private collector, have given the Archive permission to include thousands of Blake's images and texts without fees."

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is listed - although the book is not a childrens book. Students could visit Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame site and download one of the trailers (Quasimodo has a page of his own). You might ask students to uses search tools to see if an electronic version of the book is available and select a portion to excerpt. Teachers might create a question set on how the handicapped are presented in the media and especially in this film. More mature students can deal with some "advanced" questions for research and evaluation. As a motivational tool or as a reward, let students browse the Disney site.

    If you click on the "Collections" icon near the bottem, the browser moves to a page with a unique set of thumbnails (about 50) that are very small, clickable and arranged in a tight rectangle. Each thumbnail is not a small version of the larger graphic, but a clip or cut of a central figure or focal point from the painting. This is not only creative, it's a real time-saver as the page loads much faster that the usual thumnail list.

    "In 1993 something unusual happened in America's heartland — the ancient art of fresco painting was revived by a young artist and his nine assistants. The University of St. Thomas took a half-million-dollar gamble and hired 36-year-old Mark Balma to create a 1,904-square-foot mural on the ceiling of its Hall of Founders in downtown Minneapolis. The result is a powerful contemporary interpretation of the seven virtues as described by St. Thomas Aquinas, the university's patron saint ( faith, justice, prudence, hope, temperance, fortitude, and charity)." What role does virtue play in the lives of individuals and communities?

  201. Creating Art from Differences: Lesson Plan
    I browsed through the 3 pages of the article "Creating Art from Differences" and then viewed the actual lesson plan for the activity. The pages were appealing, well organized and loaded rapidly. Separating the actual lesson from its description makes it possible for casual browsers to skip the details and go to the next article if their interest is not sparked. I visited other articles and features of this first issue (Try "Making Dyes Naturally"!! and Sharing Family Traditions) and will return to pick up what I missed on the first visit. You will too...and both of us will look forward to the second issue! Oops...I failed to mention the interactive features... Several lessons include an interactive/feedback dimension (visitors to the natural dyes lesson are encouraged to submit their own ideas for natural dyes). Only a few lessons are currently on the site but I think the site will soon be loaded with good lessons and classroom ideas. This it the best Web lesson page I have seen this year!

  10. Musica Mecanica
    This is my favorite site for the week. Guess it is the great ragtime music presented....but other parts included top tech support for the downloads (courtesy of Apple and the webmaster of the site), the fine navigation tools, the fast server and the effort to offer "Francais, English and Deutsch" to visitors.
    You just have to see the musical postcards! The only thing missing to be transported back to the taverns and beer halls of the early 20th century was the beer and pretzels and that kind of stale hops/tobacco odor that lingered in such establishments.
    Before I could listen to the selections, I was informed that one of the components of QuickTime was missing from my system. I was given the option to download the necessary software. Choosing to do this brought an offsite side trip to the software archive, where the component is downloaded and installed automatically. Very slick! After going through this process, I clicked on Maple Leaf Rag (Scott Joplin -- Rearranged in a Brasilian samba by Robbie Rhodes) and listened to an excellent short rendition. I'm glad I sprang for the good speakers with the "Super Woofer" at computer purchase time. You can also listen to Harlem Rag - Rosestock - Hawaii - Boire un petit coup... - A la claire fontaine...
    You must also visit The Bouteillophone (click on the "Special Favorite" link), a carillon uses 8 bottles instead of bells. "It was built with Meccano pieces by M. Roger Charnoud, from Lyon (France). An electric motor provokes the rotation of the cylinder, on the surface of which are implanted screws, according to the score to play. When a screw grips one of the 8 levers, a hammer strikes the corresponding bottle. To select one of the 7 tunes, the cylinder shifts slightly sideways. To tune a bottle, water is added or emptied. It is said that such carillons were made in the XIXth century. They were soon forbidden, because the bottles were filled with wine, and the tuner usually slept completely drunk before having finished his task."
    If MUSICA MECANICA is of interest to you, the site lists Museums and private collections open to the public in the world. I discovered some close to home that would make great social studies field trips, some were not confined to music (Circus World Museum and the State Historical Society).
