Dinotopia Teaching Unit

Tony Shaw, who presides at a one-teacher school in the bush of Australia, has created a teacher's resource using Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara in the classroom.

He put together a free downloadable document to give fellow teachers ideas on how they might use the illustrated book in their curriculum.

"The great thing about working with literature such as yours is that you always find new ideas, approaches and messages to explore with your students. I will be teaching this unit next term and I expect I will come up with additional ideas as I go along."
Thanks, Tony!

Tony's unit is based on the 2007 book Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara

I think if classes as a whole utilized entertainment/media examples for their lessons like this, then kids would probably pay more attention.
