Unfortunately on Wednesday I had no access to my e-mail account because some technician (or so I was told) caused Pac Bell services to be interrupted to my Internet provider and it didn't get fixed until 3 p.m. PDT!
I think this interrupted some of my correspondence.
One of the goals of the Institute was to see how this communication would develop with the working groups and the idea of using newsgroups was the way we were trying to initiate the communication. I am not sure how many of the working groups' participants were able to work with this concept. If you subcribe to the newsgroup it can be overwhelming. If you only look for postings with the Middle School subject you do miss a few thoughts here and there - I know there are some postings that do not have those subjects and therefore you might have missed them. When I say this, too, it might be that others were not responding because it was a lot to filter and sift through to find an appropriate place to respond.
I have appreciated your ideas - I was hoping to get a dialogue going with others in the group on specific questions that could be used for the coloring questions but...we didn't seem to have others join in. It is still a page that I will be writing and adding in to the Magic Square group of pages and your comments will be helpful as I add more in.
My thought is that I will keep in touch with you (and others) after the Institute and as I finish parts of page sections you will be able to provide me with feedback and/or more ideas.
