The Ariel Project

Just wanted to do a quick shout-out for a blog created by teachers to share literary projects and ideas. The title comes from Ariel, the magical spirit who serves the magician Prospero (himself a teacher for his daughter). It has visual projects, video games, and lots of neat pictures!

My aim in The Ariel Project, is to create a website where we can share our images and texts, thus building a writing assignment that is polyvocal so that you can see interpretation at work, with artists, with scholars, and with each other.

One entry I thought was really cool was a video game designed by a teacher to tell the story of the Tempest, which sounds like a fascinating concept, and I’ll certainly try to adapt it myself.
