I am starting a Dystopian novel unit at the end of February. I am looking forward to incorporating elements from this blog lesson and another one called Creating Character Blogs (http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/creating-character-blogs-1169.html?tab=6#tabs). Thanks so much for providing these resources for teachers to use with students!

This is great. I have to say! I applied this at my unit. It is about ex Yugoslavenian writer and his novel The Springs of Ivan The Seal. This is convinient because it is type of novel where focus is on main character thoughts, feelings, interest etc. I gave it as a homework because we do not have conditions for all part of lessons to be done at our school.They will prepare their project for next Tuesday. I can not wait! Sorry for my bad english!

This is a great idea. Did you have to get permission for students to create their own email accounts? Also, agree with Gail that the rubric scores are reversed.

This is a super lesson plan/idea; however, I went to the saidthegramophone.com blog, and I encountered foul language of the f-bomb variety. This just reminds me that we must always check and update our online sources for appropriateness. Also, the rubric scores need to be reversed, I think. It seems they are in opposite order.

Thanks for the great lesson idea. I plan to incorporate it into my unit on "A Midsummer Night's Dream."
