in reply to Teaching a class

Lincoln Stein's Guide to would probably be a good book to have. If the kids have a chance to put their work in front of other people (outside of the class), it could lead to more opps for encouraging feedback from friends or family. I think kids like to see things happen and an email that they receive in response to a form they've created could help push them to see what else they can make happen.

    I'd have to second that. I've been up in front of kids of this sort, for a science demonstration/lecture. The more visible and public the results the better. Most kids will have non coder friends and family. Those friends and family will be duly impressed with about any page jr does, and will apply some genuine positive feedback to the kids.

    Its a thought, but I would think the might be a little advanced for these kids.

    I admit it, I am Paco.

[hippo]: Cut should beless than 20% after tax, though. :-)
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, but at least two years ago, it still was close enough to 20% cut
[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
[Corion]: That is easy without having to pay for a house, a wife or children though. If I had any of these, or any two of these, the decision wouldn't be that easy.
[ambrus]: wait. I understand no wife and children, but how do you not have to pay for a house?
[hippo]: I had a low-paid job about 20 years ago and seriously considered going down to a 3-day week. Would have worked 60% of the time for about 80% of the cash.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, I pay rent, but don't own a house with variable/ unforeseeable costs
