Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm planning on collaborating with a colleague to teach a unit on math in literature. This would be for high achieving high-school seniors (a few juniors) for the 2 weeks or so after the AP exams at the end of the school year. I bring the math, she brings the English, we both bring the awesome. Or that's the plan.
I only thought about doing this yesterday, so I haven't had time to think things through very well yet. My thoughts immediately sprang to Flatland, and she suggested Alice in Wonderland. I plan to do some research in the next few days to find a work or works to look at, but I throw it before the collective wisdom...any ideas? Something super-deep wouldn't work (we only have a short time, and they'll be looking for a bit of a break after the AP's), but I'd like it to be challenging and interesting.
