Games, puzzles and brainteasers occupy a bit of landscape on my desk - they entice even the most reticent student to challenge themselves. Opportunities to stretch thinking, to have hands-on problem solving and to collaborate with others (or to compete with themselves!) are popular amongst our teenagers. Many of them get so entranced with the task that they 'lose' their entire lunch time. For me, it is such a joy to watch them so engaged - there's so much more we need to be doing to prepare our students for their futures....Lorenzo Walker campus, Naples, FL


  1. This is fun! Are those the actual colours or did you doctor the photograph?

  2. Definitely doctored up - used Photoshop for the 'hint o'green'! In reality, there is a rainbow of color, but little green and to recognize St. Patty's Day, I decided a little play was in order! :)

  3. Nice effect - makes for an interesting image. I find my eye darting all over the picture.
