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.
