I have read your e-mail. I agree with you. I will do a link to your page and to the music page as you wish. I think is just for your students. I will do a revision of my English page in the next days. I will keep in touch with you. Thank you.

WHAT'S HOT? Art Education Resources on the Web:
Every issue of E-News offers hot links to sites that may be of interest to you for your teaching. If you know of a site that can be highlighted, please send it to E-News.
JFK High School. From Steve Feld, NYSATA member at JFK High in the Bronx, comes news of a web site created by his students. For centuries art historians, and Leonardists, as some fans of Leonardo da Vinci are called, have pondered why the dark haired woman in his famous painting is smiling. Steve's students offer a possible solution to this 16th-century enigma. Their site, Why is the Mona Lisa Smiling? features an animated sequence that fuses the Mona Lisa's face with that of her creator's. To view the site go to /13681/data/davin2.shtml
In addition to the Mona Lisa site, a new project of Steve's award winning classes is designed to predict how art will influence our lives in the next 100 years. Through probing past art inspiration as and scientific methods, students use available data to make reasonable forecasts about the future. Solving a challenging quiz gives the visitor access to a "Future Art Gallery". To view the site go to /13681/data/nyc/timess.htm

Dear Steve---Please tell your students from JFK that they did an exceptional job on their web site and we'd be delighted to include it on our humanities page. It's perfect for a class like "Humanities through the Arts" because connections is what we're all about.
What we may do is highlight it on our newsletter "Humanities Now" when we reprint later this fall. That way teachers in Kentucky (we have several hundred) can get a "click on" version.
Again, thanks for offering this to us--it is a great gift to our students and teachers.

Thank you very much for you interest in the Resource resource and your request has been given special consideration and is approved.
You Know Steve, I am an artist too by the way, and I would be very proud if I had students who have won such an award. Your site and your students are very impressive, In fact I would like to create a new student acheivement category on my link bar at the top. Please give a couple of days on this before you can see it, but it might be done sooner.
If you have any suggestions or any changes you would like to make let me know.
I just put up my own creative site about a week now and have been working on java animation code clips for my front door to my Art Gallery: www.angelfire.com/ca6/cornwall
Its veiwed best with internet explorer and low and high bandwidth options are available on the site and it has a redirector for netscape browsers and internet explorer.
I am waiting on a scanner before I can put up my art work that I have done on paper. I found a good deal on a scanner.
Thank you very much, Steve

PS. The Resource resource has a URL redirector that is easier to remember: 2learn.isfun.net

Thank you for your suggestion. I will put your link up shortly. I was also wondering if you could put my link on your site. Thank you.

We are delighted to include your link on our educational websites listings. Although, a mere link does not do your site justice. We found your projects to be interesting and informative. We would also like to include your link in our next issue of "The Oley School Report" which will be coming out in December or January if that is ok with you. Your link can be found here http://www.geocities.com/athens/delphi/7844/edsites.html Please review it and if we have made any mistakes please let us know via e-mail. Thanks for your contribution to our site content.

Sorry for the delay in responding to your very kind comments. Your site continues to be cited as a model for excellence in so many places. We read about it in many articles and find reference to it on the web often. Yours is truly a remarkable accomplishment and we're honored by your recognition. Thank you -- and keep up your terrific work. It's a model for every teacher who aspires to motivate students.

Thanks for directing me to your page on Leonardo and the Mona Lisa. I apologize for the tardy reply but I have added it to the Social Studies page under Fun Links. We have had students fom Windsor involved in Thinkquest also, one hoped to make it to the finals this year in Cairo but got Honorable mention again. I know the effort involved in the project.

I enjoyed the sites you created for both educational value and due to the fact you managed to get at risk kids to work together and get excited about the web.
We will be adding both sites to our site in the next five days, the exact day, I am unsure of, however I will send you a link when finished.
The only thing that struck me was that no one looked at the possibility of post biological man and art, or the mix of man and technology with art, I foresee a day when man will plug into the exhibit, and have all the sensations the artist intended, the smell of the flower, the taste of rain in the air, the cold wind on the hair of your arm or the ruffle of wind in your beard. But it will all be thru direct stimulation to the brain from a plug in that goes direct to the cortex of the brain.
Perhalps that subject, POST BIOLOGICAL MAN may be a great next subject which would be full of possibilities for the students minds.
Thanks for the submission once again, and we are delighted people like you exist on this planet to help children grow and learn.
