OK - Let's do this one from inception to completion - here is the email I received from a teacher who has caught the fire:
"I'm inspired! I want my next unit to include Second Life.
Here's what I have for the next unit:
Five book choices (Classic sci-fi and fantasy)
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Tarzan of the Apes, The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, The Invisible Man.
The unit focus is Expression of Social Views Through Theme...these are the essential questions:
What is the root of human conflict?
Is the capacity for good or evil learned or innate?
How do authors express social and/or political views in their work?
What makes someone a hero?"
I will blog the entire process as we go - and perhaps the viewer community here can contribute ! Please feel free to contribute ideas for this project and I will share our process as it unfolds.
