The popularity of the three CSI shows currently running on TV makes one wonder: why the public’s fascination with forensics and crime scene investigation? But maybe an even more immediate question might be: Why did April and Jasmine choose this theme for the 2007-2008 Spectrum? A quick answer would be: We expect something wacky and different from this year’s editors: that’s the way they are! But I think that, as usual, there is method in their madness. School years do need to be re-examined. What happens in a school year is amazingly rich with many experiences and impressions. There’s a lot to be put under a microscope. Pictures and words on a page bring back memories and impressions and are evidence that students are constantly changing. Lots happened in this school year and this book is evidence of that.
