Reflection: Modeling Caverna Magica -- Describing a Fictional Place - Section 3: Some famous openings! Models for students to discuss.


While I don't think that we are screeching ahead at blinding speed, I do think that there are some challenges in this set of lessons, and  you might want to extend this lesson over two days.  I had to cut the Dickens example a bit short, and I think it might be nice to have the students put their character cameo character into some of their practice work throughout this less.  The students are engaged and very excited to make their characters come to life (a bit of Dr. Victor Frankenstein at work here?), and it might be good to capitalize on that to some degree.
