I had a very disheartening experience yesterday! I am currently student teaching in k-12. My elementary experience involves teaching under an over worked art coordinator and under the individual classroom teachers. I have developed and written new art lessons for each grade according to the state standards and the coordinators curriculumn structure. When I actually get to teach in the classrooms I get 50 minutes to present art history, aesthetics, criticism, demo new techniques and have students do the project. Any other art they get is at the descression and under the guidance of thier homeroom teacher.

This week I introduced the 5th graders to monoprinting using plexiglass plates which I supplied from my personal inventory and washable markers. We viewed and discussed monoprints created by Wayne Thiebaud. I used this to introduce the monoprinting technique and to discuss Pop art. The students had a previous lesson about the work of Andy Warhol and I was thrilled that they were able to make great comparissons between the two artists work.

For the art project the students were to create a Pop Art monoprint. We brainstormed about possible images they might depict. Everything was going so well until a couple of the kids told the teacher they didn't know what to draw. The teacher then announces to the entire class that they can draw what ever they want, because this is thier art work. So much for pop art! I got decorative names, simplistic scenery, and what I call wall paper art! When I confronted the teacher later about her taking over in the classroom and how her comments had interrupted the students actual creative learning process, she reminded me that I was a student teacher and had a lot to learn!

The monoprinting went over so well in the other 4 classes I did on Tuesday that the school is purchasing thier own pexiglass plates and will also…...

...rate at which the water is input to the bucket unless the bucket is empty. The input rate can vary, but the output rate remains constant. Similarly, in networking, a technique called leaky bucket can smooth out bursty traffic. Bursty chunks are stored in the bucket and sent out at an average rate. Figure 24.19 shows a leaky bucket and its effects. 778 CHAPTER 24 CONGESTION CONTROL AND QUALITY OF SERVICE Figure 24.18 Weighted fair queuing The tuming switch selects 3 packets from first queue, 1 - - - - - - , then 2 packets from the second ' - - - ' - - - ' - - ' - ' -............-L.....J queue, then I packet from the third queue.

The use of the leaky bucket shapes the input traffic to make it conform to this commitment. In Figure 24.19 the host sends a burst of data at a rate of 12 Mbps for 2 s, for a total of 24 Mbits of data. The host is silent for 5 s and then sends data at a rate of 2 Mbps for 3 s, for a total of 6 Mbits of data. In all, the host has sent 30 Mbits of data in lOs. The leaky bucket smooths the traffic by sending out data at a rate of 3 Mbps during the same 10 s. Without the leaky bucket, the beginning burst may have hurt the network by consuming more......
