Re: Cyanotype with high school students
I tried again today. (I also teach high school photography, only I teach the wet kind) I was able to get OK prints, although the exposure time was extremely long. The transparency version was much quicker and snappier. Since I have 180 beginners, I don't think I'll spring for the transparencies.
On the plus side, the generic Sax 140 lb watercolor held a great blue without staining, even with a little acid in the wash.

Have you tried using paper negs?
Did you ???? I never had a good result with paper negs for cyanotype; for oil-printing and gum it was ok for me, but cyanotypes ....
