THIS IS FLIPPIN' GREAT!!!

 

Sometimes we just run across a pretty darned incredible resource for teaching literature. This short video makes the different types of heroes in literature and the roles they play so clear...and best of all, the role they play in our lives.

 

Can it get any cooler? YES! You can actually "Flip" the lessons yourself and wrap your own lessons around each video. 

 

AND, it just keeps getting cooler. You can use the ed.TED.com site to create a lesson for any video on YouTube! Host that lesson on ed.TED.com 

 

You can assign the lesson and even track your students' progress through the lessons. 

 

And (I'm hyperventilating!) this is only one of several great lessons in literature. Check this out...

And, literature is only one of several subjects represented.

 

BUT... just watch this video for an overview of the project.

Probably the most inspiring 2:42 minute video I've seen in a loooong time!
