Abstract

The purpose of this project is to look for good methods to integrate technology into classroom instruction as a means of boosting both student engagement and learning. The curriculum for this unit is developed for a high school American Literature class. It uses a series of texts, technologies, and websites to have students recreate characters and interactions from a literary text into a modern format with a different means of communication. Students will come to develop a deeper understanding of characters and conflicts through this process. Additionally, motivation will be initiated through authentic and familiar technological tools.
