'Pop' goes the assignment

I love the MT program for a lot of reasons but one of the best is collaborating with instructors.  It’s very rewarding to be involved in the ground-level planning in some of the classes.

For example, I recently had the opportunity to pull many ‘toy and movable books’ (aka, pop up books, books with movable bits such as maps and fold out papers, envelops with letters, etc.) for two instructors. Their idea was to inspire their students with lots of remarkable resources to show how their work could be presented in innovative ways – not necessarily just as written text but perhaps incorporating artwork, too.  After lots of discussion, the instructors decided to include more than just the pop up books and bring in books with various, unusual ways to tell a story.

Wow!  This threw it wide open for me and the resources which I could pull.
