maybe because in this instant age
it will allow students to realize
not everything happens instantly ?
otherwise aside from the whole "gee wiz" factor of chemical photography
i don't really think it leads to a greater understanding of anything ( image wise, art wise )
they can't do with modern technology...using chemicals is time consuming and more deliberate and requires commitment
don't get me wrong, i would rather use the black arts more than anything else
but i don't really think chemicals are needed to created art, just imagination
( which is something people use film and pixels sometimes lack ..... )
as you know from your own work, making something by hand is always worthwhile ...
maybe hand made and not instant could be your spin ?
good luck with your class+curriculum !
