  • A little something to celebrate George Orwell’s birthday today: You can now catch on YouTube the 1954 animated film, Animal Farm, based on Orwell’s classic novella first published in 1945. The film, which runs 71 minutes, has actually had a controversial history. As outlined by The New York Times, the CIA bought the rights to the film and modified the screenplay to emphasize anti-communist themes. This all gets covered in detail by Daniel Leab’s 2007 book Orwell, Subverted.
  • Are your students tired of writing prompts and daily writing drills? Here is a list of some fun ways to spark students' imaginations and tap into their creative writing abilities. I think your students will enjoy these ideas as much as mine have.

  • So many great ideas came up that I thought it would be appropriate to start a new wiki to allow everyone interested to take ownership of these projects. As much as I would like to participate in every single one, I know that realistically it’s not possible. With this Global Collaborations wiki we can begin to connect individual schools together on projects that truly enhance the core curriculum units. Please feel free to contribute anything and everything to this new space!
    For convenience, I have listed all of the projects that we brainstormed here, along with a number of collaborative projects that I’m already working on or have already initiated with colleagues over the past few weeks. Now comes the hard part: actually getting started on all these inspiring ideas!
