Read-Write-Think Lesson on Video Gaming

A while back, Dr. Stearns introduced us to the sample lesson plans on the NCTE Read-Write-Think website.  I have been keeping my eye out for new lesson plans that introduce technology into the classroom in ground-breaking ways.  Tonight I came across a lesson plan entitled Flight of the Imagination, which uses the popular game “World of the Warcraft” to inspire student-driven plans for new fantasy video games.  The lesson plan overview says:

In this lesson, students learn about the “World of Warcraft,” a successful online video game with over six million paying subscribers worldwide. They then develop storylines, settings, characters, and technical features to create their own fantasy video games that would appeal to the public.”

As we have talked about new forms of text in 541 discussions, I really want to add video gaming to the list of literacies.  Please check out this lesson plan at the read-write-think site for more information.  Sofia
