Thanks for the tips....I'm going to start looking into them now. I went to talk to them some more with fees for the classes and such and they are now willing to spend about 700-750 so I'll keep looking. I just have to give them the list asap. It must be new items.

kenafein - it will be a high school elective, and I don't mind at all really. We are a small school and we try to offer the classes the students are interested in, and we have several that want to take digital photography next year. As the technology teacher, I've been elected. This method works for our elective courses, and I've learned a lot over the years with being flexible and teaching what kids want to learn.

The students will get to use this camera and whatever we buy. We will combine the photography with also teaching photoshop..

I am a teacher and have been told I will teach a digital photography class next year. I know NOTHING about it so I will be taking a class in the spring and probably more in the summer. I have been given the following items and told they have about $500 for me to spend on additional items...

They have already ordered the following:

This stuff has been shipped, but I haven't put my hands on it....

It includes
1- Pentax K-R 12.4 MP Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 and 50-200mm f/4-5.6 Lenses
1- DLI109 Lithium Ion Replacement Rechargeable Battery (Not Original Pentax)
1- 3 Piece Filter Kit Includes: UV, Circular Polarizer and Flourescent Filter and Hard Case
1- 16GB SDHC Secure Digital Memory Card (Memories are Priceless!)
1- 0.45x Wide Angle Lens w/ Pouch and Caps (Capture That View!)
1- 2x Telephoto Lens W/ Pouch and Caps (More Zoom is better!)
1- Full Size 59" Tripod W/Carry Bag (Keep it Steady!)
1- External Digital Slave Flash (Brighten Up Your Memories!)
1- Multi 50 in 1 USB Card Reader(Download your images to your computer quickly!)
1- Padded Carrying Case (Protect your Investment!)
1- Memory Card Wallet (Keep your Memory Cards Organized!)
1- Mini Table Top Tripod
1- Pack of LCD Screen Protectors (Protect your LCD!)
1- Lens/LCD Maintenance Cleaning Kit

I must spend the money soon (before I even know anything about got to love school administrators)...

So...what would you recommend I buy with that $500?
