OK! Body Image class has begun - very interesting to see the kids grapple with the tools and with the reality of addressing their own appearance --- they are first creating an avatar as close to their real life persona as possible. Ryl Redgrave was kind enough to add folders and folders of hair, skins, shapes, etc. For the most part the kids are being true to the assignment - AND they have learned a great deal already. For instance, many wanted to be able to "keep" the avatar that they had before this assignment, so we learned how to do that - Also they are learning important rules about managing their inventory as they are acquiring things very rapidly! But more importantly, we are hearing comments like " My nose isn't that uptuned!" -and "How do I make my self shorter?" The discussion/refection will ensue tomorrow. For now here are some pics:
