Virtual Worlds-Another Option

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us Since Second Life has a bit of a learning curve, why not try Literary Worlds where you can work with your teens to explore a deeper relationship through literature with one of these 15 sets (Mrs. Dalloways, An Island Like You, or even Maniac Magee) or try the easy to use software, Encore4, to develop your own. Have your teen technology team lead the way!
