Collected Works – Stamps in the Classroom

An older article ‘Collected Works‘ in the New York Times education section by Sierra Prasada Millman and Javaid Khan presents a lesson plan that might still prove of value to teachers in their classrooms. Very interesting approach in studying and critiquing but then more valuable in the doing!

In this lesson, students consider why people collect stamps and other items and how the Internet has changed such hobbies. They work in small groups to review stamp collecting Web sites and brainstorm how the Web can serve another popular collectible. For homework, they design a homepages devoted to the collectible of their choice.
