I have been working very hard over the last few days to think of a project that will engage and impress my Year 10 Extension class as much as our much-loved Hunger Games RPG (which was so loved one student wrote 14,000 words in 14 days).
I don’t think this project will result in my students staying awake and posting messages on facebook and twitter until midnight (like #HG2212 did), but I do hope it will make a lasting impression on them as human beings. This article kinda gets to the heart of this project’s relevance.
Below is our project outline. I’m about to send it to them on edmodo. Wish me luck.
