What you say...



What a great job.

Thank you so much for a guide to almost all the items in the magazine. The teaching notes are excellent and very helpful and most usuable.

The unit on cartoons (which would never have been on my radar, previously) is a great lead into visual literacy which is on the agenda apostropheat our school.

Thank you once again. Gail
