Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can use The Iowa City UNESCO City of Literature app in connection with an online scavenger hunt. For example, to begin a unit centered on Vonnegut’s “Slaughterhouse-Five,” teachers could create a scavenger hunt in which students will be instructed to gather information on the author and the book. Following, students could then work in groups to create a digital representation of the information they found using another app, such as Notability, Inkflow, Paper by Fifty Three, Haiku Deck, or Popplet.
  2. Teachers can use The Iowa City UNESCO City of Literature app to enhance the learning of a particular literary work or author by having students explore the related images, audio, and videos in the “Media” tab. Next, teachers can have students compile and present what they learned in a multimedia piece of their own making, using an app such as Videolicious, iMovie, or 30hands.
  3. After studying an author that is not included in The Iowa City UNESCO City of Literature app, students can be instructed to create an entry for the author modeled after the entries in this app.
