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.

How to post your work to scoop.it

This is how you post your work to scoop.it.

After locating and article you consider interesting and useful for the activity you are going to post about, you should copy the link of the article into the Scoop.it box.


Then, Scoop.it will gather the rest of the information in the article (that you can also edit afterwards).

This is a model of how your post should look:


  • Edit the name of the article if it's necessary.
  • include a short description or a quote from the article.
  • Describe what the article is about in a short paragraph.
  • Write your opinion about the article. What's interesting about it? why did you choose it?
  • Add the workshop number and name.
  • Add the link to the drive document. This is where we can find your work.
If you have any doubts, don't hesitate to ask. Contact your professor or classmates and ask for help.

Keep shining Love and Peace!
