May- August 2015 Final Project: Illustrating a story

For this project we'll be illustrating the story written by Leo Tolstoy- What men live by. You can download the story here: What men Live By

"What Men Live By" is a short story written by Russian author Leo Tolstoy in 1885. It is one of the short stories included in his collection What Men Live By, and Other Tales, published in 1885.
The story is about a poor shoemaker named Simon and his wife Matrena who, moved by pity, take in a man Simon finds naked and hungry. The man turns out to be more than what Simon thought.

This is a video of the story. It's in Russian. I think. Subtitles are in English.


Here you can listen to the story in an audio book:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeQAGv4LmSE

How are we doing this?

1. Get in a group of 4 or 5 students. Discuss the story and assign responsibilities within the group.
2. The idea is to tell and illustrate the story. Each group should work in a connected way to collaborate and cooperate in the making of the book.
3. Post the book on line.
4. This book we'll be used by students in lower levels.
5. We will set a presentation of the book in Secondlife.
