Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THf lETHMIOGI HEftALD Friday, February ivina Cameras help children develop visual responses TORONTO (CP) Give a child a camera and he won't get hung up on f-stops, film speeds and whether or not the sun is behind his back. A recent study involving 34 school children here has shown that children take the mechan- ics out of photography and sim- ply take pictures they see their subjects. "The camera became an ex- tension of their hands and said Dorothy Trieger, a LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By DONNA MATOLSCI Kate Andrews High School THE This has very little relevance to what I want to say, but it's a great way to attract attention and start my article out on. For those attending Leth- bridge schools, you need not have to worry about writing departm e n t a 1 examinations from Edmonton. Your exams were made up for you by your ow i teachers. But for all those who just received their results on these exams, how many would be in agreement with 'having the tests banned! I'm sure there would be quite a few who would strongly agree with this and I'm no different. I mean, what do the Depart- mentals prove? Do they really show anything? In evaluating these written papers, the department com- pares you to all the other kids in the province writing the same exams. What satisfaction is there in being compared to other "dummies" like you? Sure, marks are marks, and the higher the better, but con- sider this. Throughout the year or semester, you've done poor- ly in a course and on the De- partmental you get a percen- tage of 55. Now, this 55 per cent may be a 100 per cent improvement compared to yrxr year's work, yet to the computers and mark- ers in Edmonton, that's aver- age not good, not bad, not anything just average. So what did the departmentals prove? That you are average? Instead of trying to just push the idea of getting that "A" grade on your paper, how about encour- aging The students to learn something? The department of education expounds a philosophy of edu- cation stressing the uniqueness of each individual student and growth hi relation to himself and then lumps all students to- gether on a crummy curve. It's a case of do what I say and not what-1 do. In spending a whole semes- ter with a teacher every day in class, would it not have more validity if that teacher assess you your final mark instead of educational experts' idea of what is important to him? In being involuntarily volun- teered to write these set ex- ams, what are we students to do if your teacher decides to approach your course on the prospect of us raining more experience in life rather than verbal repetition? Lump it? We really do not have an al- ternate choice except to rely on our luck in multiple guess- ing. I think thif aspect of our ed- ucational system should be changed and we're the ones who will eventually do it. For the whole world will someday depend on us whether we can cope with a situation, solve a crisis, and not on whether we passed English 30. As for the banning of the bra, I'm not for it. After all, we do need some support.

"They used them very naturally. "When "l take a picture I have to pose it. They take it as Dart of life." The children were each given a Polaroid camera and all the film they wanted for 10 weeks. They produced black-and- white child's gallery of pictures. "We went down to the country and I saw this tree that was just budding and it looked lonely, so I thought I would take its pic- said Wayne Freeman. 10, in describing one of his oroduc- tions. The children developed their own specialties. For examole, Douglas Ouderkirk, an active, athletic youngster, delighted in ston-action. "The children are he said of one of his pictures, "but they seem to be like stat- ues, because the camera doesn't take moving pictures. It makes everything stand still." RESPOND VISUALLY At one point hi the project, Mrs. Trieger quietly posted 25 paintings and 18 professional photographs around the school to see if they would influrace the ybung shutterbugs. They seemed to. One girl did a series of the crest on a box, another set up a still life and another child took several shots of a pole lamp in his par- ent's living room. Mrs. Trieger requested the cameras from the Polaroid Corp. Canada Ltd. and the school board spent on film. A movie of the picture-tak- ing project now is being produced by the board's teach- ing aids denartment. The project is difficult to measure in objective terms, but Louis Shore, the boards arts and crafts director, said it broke new ground in under- standing the world of children. "The children can respond visually to certain experiences when they haven't the verbal capacity tn do so. Their visual response is as real an experi- ence to them as they might get through any other means. "Some of them saw objec- tively, and some of them saw affectively, or emotionally. The camera was a kind of tool that helped them to integrate or re- late their own world to them- selves." TOP TWELVE 45 R.P.M. LEISTER'S MAIL ORDERS! Tick off the selections you wont and tend us.

Velvet, satin, denim shorts for the man By ALISON LERRICK PARIS (API-Men's fash- ion designers are putting the stronger sex in shorts. At the llth European men's-w ear salon, which opened Saturday under the auspices of more than 300 manufacturers from 10 Euro- pean countries, India and the United States, many manu- facturers, and stores, are putting their money on shorts. For daytime they come in suede, denim, linen and jer- sey or skinny little ribbed knits that emphasize tapered hips. Night people can switch to jungle prints, panne velvet or floppy satin. Over shorts go tight battle jackets, half-buttoned of course, or long open tunics to reveal a matching hairy chest. The problem is. what goes from the shorts down? Ruben Torres is for heavy ribbed pantyhose to match the sweater, with patent boots exclusively for formal occasions. Most manufac- turers agree that the ideal is bare feet with sandals or moccasins a concession to tenderfeet to leave the long expanse of leg unspoiled by socks. I "Pantyhose are a bit femi- says Henri Abou- daram, who is bending his ef- forts to send shiploads of shorts to North America. "Besides, a well-groomed man naturally is never hairy, or he shaves his legs." Quasa'r Khanh, furniture designer launching his first fashion collection, prefers Bermudas, in candycane- striped canvas to match the shirt. Baby blue is obviously for boys, but then so is rose petal pink.
