I can’t talk about my own experience with ER without talking about the amazing people who introduced it to me. Kevin Stein’s blog has always been a great source of inspiration as he shares experiences directly from his classes. That was in 2013. Then, later that year Marcos Benevides and other authors came up with this awesome project called Attama-ii. I had never heard of Multiple-path stories before, and I got super excited for the books to come out in early 2014. With Marcos’ help I introduced my students to it using Zombies in Tokyo with 9th graders and The Lost Cup with my 8th graders.
If you haven’t checked this series out yet, here is the website.
Kevin’s post that inspired me:
(spoiler: How wrong I was!)
Other posts from Kevin that shouldn’t be missed. I highly recommend reading the post above and all the comments.
I haven’t read them all myself, but I’ll make sure I do before the next term starts cuz I’m sure I’ll discover wonderful ideas to use in my classes. My big thanks to Kevin for blogging. And also all bloggers out there! Thank YOU 😀
Almost a year later…
I was eager to give ER a try!
Luckily I had this wonderful opportunity to take the iTDi Advanced course
ELT Reading Materials Design with Marcos Benevides last September which gave me the last piece of understanding that was missing to put it all together using what I had available.
