This morning I was asked to teach 3 classes in the unified arts 
program for the coming year.  I know many of you already do that so I 
am seeking advice.  I am in a middle school and we are on the quarter 
system so these would be quarter long courses for grades 7 and 
8.  The classes would concentrate on using technology skills but not 
"how to do powerpoint".  They would not be taught in conjunction with 
academic classes and the students would come from different 
clusters.  I can design my own program and can concentrate on 
literacy skills.  What I thought would be the big sticking point was 
that it would pull me out of the LMC for 3 periods a day.  They are 
willing to hire a 1/2 time certified LMS to cover the LMC so I will 
actually gain professional help in the LMC.

Do any of you teach technology skills in your LMC program on a fixed 
schedule?  Any suggestions?  Pitfalls? Dynamite lessons? I have until 
this afternoon to give them my answer.

Thanks for any help.
