We're leaving the realm of Greek and entering into pedagogy --
but that doesn't seem to bother folks on this list.  :)
(It's fine with me, too, BTW.)

Most experienced teachers agree that no single method is the "right"
method for every student.  Do what works for your kids.

That means that you *must* be willing to sacrifice some time 
(by experimenting and "wasting" time in trial-and-error)
in order to find out what does in fact work.  So what if 
they don't get as much grammar this week?  If it means that 
next week they start learning better than they have been, 
it's well worth the time you've used.

Now, more directly related to the Greek:
Somewhere there is a very useful (and fun!) illustration of 
Greek prepositions, entitled "An Adventure With A Lion".
I seem to remember seeing it on the internet a few months ago,
but when I looked for it a moment ago, I couldn't find it.
Anybody know where it is?
