Ok…my attempt at creating the framework for a weblog/reader’s guide to The Secret Life of Bees is up. (Just click on the title of this post.) Comments, anyone? My thought is to “assign” various aspects to students (chapter summaries, research, character sketches, artistic interpretations, etc.) and then have them post their efforts. The key is to post to a relevant department so that along the way we can look at all the character stuff or theme stuff or whatever stuff in one place and maybe be enlightened. (The departments are listed in the left column.) I like the idea of being the first to do this, both teach the book and create a reader’s guide, and I’m hoping the kids might be into that too. Any/all suggestions greatly appreciated. (Footnote: I called the author’s publicist and left a message…wouldn’t it be fun to have her interact in the site???)
