In the end, it's the teacher's judgment call. She should be able to get 
a handle on the degree of difficulty as she tries to create her own 
My guess is that she is conceiving of a highly structured and limited 
project, where the kids are mainly responsible for the content, yet they 
have an opportunity to learn something about layout and design. Even 
templates can have some flexibility.

I would hope that, with the traditionally positive attitude this list 
has had, that we can offer encouragement, some words of caution for 
sure, but not just come back saying, "You are going to fail."
In some sense I think we should be cheering them on, doing everything we 
can to help them succeed.
