I am about to launch a unit on survival with my high school intermediates (kids who "sound" fluent, but struggle with reading and writing). I want to enhance the lesson with practical information that they will be able to remember and most importantly link to other disciplines: math, science, English, PE, etc.
The unit includes an abridged graphic novel on Shackleton's Expedition, basic survival tips if lost in a forest, surviving natural disasters, etc. This is all great material, but I want kids to remember the material beyond my class. Think of this goal as one of etching the information forever in their brains:)
I want to infuse memorable websites into the lesson and any other web 2.0 approaches that will stay with them beyond the class:) Any ideas?
