Peg Gillard's insight:

Beautifully powerful and haunting. A possible project arena for students, a way to share powerful images from literature, science, studies of social sciences, life.

This is an unusual one. But I really enjoy reading the works of H.G. Wells and upon viewing this, I felt it kept to the quality of that author.

 

Enjoy.

A Solitary World — a breathtaking homage to H.G. Wells, with text adapted from five of his most celebrated works: The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The First Men in the Moon (1901), In The Days of the Comet (1906), The World Set Free (1914). Read by Terry Burns and featuring an appropriately haunting score from the young British composer Lennert Busch, the film belongs to — pioneers, perhaps — an emerging creative genre: the cinematic poem.

OK. So is this Progress?  Are Humans Moving Forward?

Well - art, creativity and idea-innovation are all part of that. So in the loose and all-embracing way we love, the sanswer is yes!

Joe Berkowitz:  "Doug Dorst is co-author of S., a book that takes place within the margins of another book (it's complicated). Here, Dorst reveals how he collaborated with J.J. Abrams to create a kind of printed alternate reality game."

This is another FREE tool that can be used to help students sum up the information they learned into a neat little package.  It seems to be relatively easy to use and creates a wonderful product.  Let us know if you want to create a lesson around this type of product and we will be happy to help you!

I would have to call this the "Joseph Campbell Lite" Infographic - still, a useful resource if only a reminder of the classic monomythic storytelling recipe.

Clever infographic!
